In a child custody and visitation case, a parent is required to comply with the time-sharing schedule ordered by the Court and may not frustrate the other parent's ability to have a positive relationship with their children. In a case captioned Ford v. Ford, the Florida Court of Appeal recently found a parent in contempt of court and imposed sanctions against her for failing to comply with the court ordered parenting plan. The Court held that a parent may not encourage children not to spend time with the other parent. A parent may not participate in a child's refusal to stay at the other parent's home for time-sharing. A parent may not empower children to reject the children's relationship with the other parent. A parent should not schedule social events on days when the other parent has time-sharing with the children. A parent who does these things can be held in contempt of court.
