What are the laws regarding ordered child custody agreements if one party will not be available? Posted on July 14, 2011

My daughters ex-husband had a lung biopsy done Wed. 7/13. The custody agreement says that he gets the children Fri at 7pm - Sat.@ 6pm. He will be in the hospital over the weekend. My daughter just found this out this evening. Does she have to give the kids to his live-in girlfriend (who is only 21 & has already displayed suspect behavior)? The g/f is planning on picking them up at a neutral site - this is an ugly divorce & custody - they are heading back to court already & it has only been a yr. The g/f also added to the divorce since the husband was having an affair. My daughter cannot get a hold of her lawyer. She has calls & emails into her lawyer but no response yet.
