A: Generally, you need to comply with the court ordered/approved parenting plan UNTIL AND UNLESS the court changes the parenting plan. If appropriate you can file a motion to restrict parenting time IF the child would be in imminent danger. The court will schedule a hearing within 14 days to decide this. You should get a lawyer to help you with this.
