According to court papers, Amber claims that Andrew entered into Our Family Wizard – a court-run app where they communicate about custody – that he will be travelling for Christmas from December 22 to December 27.
According to the December 23, 2020 court filing, Amber was entitled to have James from 12pm to 9pm on Christmas Day and on the same hours on the second-half of Christmas break.
However it's reported that when Amber's lawyer allegedly reached out to Andrew's legal team, his lawyer said she would “try” to speak to him, as her office was on a two-week vacation at the time.

Additionally, Amber claims Andrew denied her holiday parenting time on October 31, 2019 and December 24, 2019, as well.
