The only way any parent can alter the parenting schedule is with the other parents agreement. He would have to state that, given her recent denial of access, it is his intention to makeup such missed time by continuing to retain custody of the child past his scheduled parent time, for a duration equal to that which was missed due to her denial of access.

But ultimately, that will set off WWXXXIVI on her end. She won't agree, will send a nice nasty gram and possibly show up at your house (hopefully you record any such instance).

Right now she is one who is being uncooperative. So long as he can prove he is acting reasonable and in the best interests of the child, he will be better off. Judges can't stand it when parents get into these tit-for-tat games and waste the courts time.

You can try to advise your ex that it is your intention to keep the child past you regular parenting time in order to makeup lost time due to her denial of access, but be prepared to have the cops show up at your door.
Again I have to agree with your take on this. There is biase in the court system whether people want to admit that or not. I have emails from her proving that she is denying access and using unproven claims to do so. She may think this is all fine and dandy but if I do have to file a motion this will be in her favour. My lawyer advised that we will continue to allow her to make mistakes and not get into a war over these things until they are brought before a court. I just got off the phone with my lawyer and he echoed the same sentiments as HammerDad almost word for word.
