Ignoring a court order could lead to a contempt order being issued by the Judge but really much more information would be needed here to determine what is going on and what and why you are trying to go against the court order. Generally the court order from the other state is filed in the courts in the state in which it is to be executed and given full force and effect.  Get help in your area.
