No, but the child can make their wishes known to the court (procedure depends on where the child lives) and custody may be modified based on the same if the child provides a valid and compelling reason why such a modification should be granted.

child support and visitation rights are two totally different things. The answer is no.


How does he have any visitation rights with a custody and child support order?


If you end a relationship with the child's mother you are not losing visitation rights, you never had visitation rights. Visitation rights are granted by a court. If you and the child's mother were married and you had a long term relationship with the child, or if there are half-siblings of that child (your children with whom you do have visitation rights) the court may award visitation rights. You need to consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues and who can review your situation and explain your options.On the other hand, you can get visitation rights by a court order if you had legally adopted the child.


Child support and visitation rights are two separate things. You don't get visitation automatically just because you pay child support. You have to petition for it in court.



Assuming you don't have legal custody of the child, you have whatever visitation rights the court have given you.


Only the court can grant and take away visitation rights.


If married you have equal rights to the child so no visitation needed. If you never been married you have to petition the court for visitation rights.


The legal guardian has all rights over the child unless the mother has visitation rights. If so, they must be followed.


yes in some cases they may not have known there was a child but now that they do they can get visitation


Nope, no rights to the child at all after birth.


Absolutely not. Child visitation rights are granted by the court, not by you. It is illegal to prevent someone with legal visitation rights to see the child.




The parent would relinquish all rights to the child. That includes rights of visitation or even any communication, rights to be involved in decisions regarding the child or the child's life at all, the right to inherit from the child.The parent would relinquish all rights to the child.

His rights are to pay child support and petition for visitation.


If you have a court order for visitation the order must be respected and he cannot move the child out of state without yours and the courts permission. If you don't have a court order for visitation, custody or child support and your parental rights have been terminated you don't have any legal rights to the child and he can not be stopped.Another PerspectiveIf the mother has visitation rights then she has parental rights. The father cannot move out of state without a modification of the visitation order if the move will affect the mother's visitation rights. He must seek a modification from the court. It will go easier if she consents.


Depends on your state, but courts say child support and visitation are two totally different subjects and are not considered together. Father has visitation rights irrespective of whether or not he pays child support.


Visitation rights should have been addressed at the time the child support order was issued. Child support and visitations are two separate issues. The father must return to the court that has jurisdiction and request a visitation schedule.


A stepparent that has established a parent-child relationship can file for visitation eright, but it's up to the judge.



Absolutely not. Visitation rights are decided by the court. Unless the court changes the visitation order, non-payment of child support is not grounds to withhold legal visitation rights.


He absolutely cannot. The mother can call the police and they can take the child back. Most likely will he loose visitation rights if he does this or it will be supervised or in the mothers home.


An unmarried father cannot "choose" to not pay child support. The laws in every state require that a father pay for the support of his child. The mother must bring an action to the appropriate court so that a child support order can be established. Visitation rights are separate and a father can have visitation rights established by the court. Visitation rights are not dependent on paying child support.
