Killeen, TX asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Texas

Q: I am a non-custodial parent with my sister being the custodial parent of my twin girls who are 10 years old.

My girls have stayed with me for the last two summers including holidays, weekends, and days off from school. I have no transportation and she has been dropping them off for visits. Last weekend I cancelled the weekend visit because of a winter storm. I have never cancelled before and this was the first time. She is now refusing to bring them for visits and I can not afford to get them in the next city over where they live. I asked to speak to them on the phone and she is refusing to let me speak to them. She is saying phone calls do not replace visits. Can I take her to court for this issue and have this resolved fairly? Thank you for your time
