No. A mother has no such power. Only a court can deny visitation rights of a father. During a marriage both parents have equal rights concerning the child. If she wants to stop visits with the father she must petition the court and provide compelling evidence that it is in the best interest of the children. The court will investigate and review the situation and render a decision.

What rights does a father have if he has visitation rights and after 8months the mother has kept the son from father?

You need to take the mother back to court to enforce the visitation order. You should act ASAP. The mother is in contempt of a court order and if she continues to ignore the court she could lose custody.


Can you lose visitation rights if you're not the biological father?

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.


If the mother deprive the father the right to see his child and he pays child support what are will the courts do for legal relief for him?

If the father has visitation rights and the mother refuses to allow the father those rights, then the father can sue the mother in a civil contempt proceeding. If she doesn't have a good reason for disallowing the visitation then she can be held in contempt of court. There are various remedies including giving the father more visitation to make up for the visitation that was disallowed by the mother or even giving the father custody, but usually, the judge will just order the mother to allow the visits. His paying or not paying child support has nothing to do with whether or not he gets visitation (i.e. he gets visitation regardless of whether or not he is current with child support).
