It is possible that a jail term could be imposed for contempt. In most cases, a court would have to hold you in contempt and threaten you with jail time if you did not purge your contempt, ordinarily by beginning to comply from that point forward. It is very unusual for jail terms to be imposed in visitation disputes, though failure to facilitate visitation is often used as an argument in change of custody disputes. If you have reason to fear for the children's safety, you should seek to address that through the court. If you do not, you should do as much as you can to encourage your children to visit in compliance with the court order.
