Answer: Parents must comply with any existing parenting time orders unless they agree otherwise, or until the orders are modified. If both parents cannot agree on a modified parenting time plan and one of you believes an adjustment is necessary, you may consider filing a request for temporary modification with the Court under Rule 48, ARFLP.
