Your best (only) bet is to complain about this situation to a few members of the city council and ask them how to file a "complaint" about the incident.

Unless there are restrictions in place through the court the other parent can let you see the child as much as you like. The timesharing schedule gives the person who has a specific day priority but does not prohibit contact with the other parent.
The WD attorney reached a settlement but now the funds are sitting in the Estate account. We are trying to close out Probate but feel there should be an allocation to the survivors and an allocation towards medical expenses.

It sounds like he is trying to modify the current timesharing arrangement. After he files the papers he needs to convince the judge that it is in the child's best interest to make the change. You will have the opportunity to say why it should not change.
