What should I expect to get out of a civil contempt enforcement hearing?

Question Details:

My boyfriend's ex-wife has never followed their parenting plan, except when she feels like it or it benefits her. The last straw was her planning a 5 week vacation out of state to take the kids on and telling him only 2 weeks beforehand. He told her he did not agree and she said she didn't care. Their parenting plan states both parties must agree prior to travel arrangements being made. So he re-opened the case and filed her in contempt. What will be accomplished at the hearing?
