Merely because the non-custodial parent is unable to attend the court ordered visitation, it does not mean that he or she will automatically loose his or her visitation rights. If the non-custodial parent is unable to attend the court ordered visitation, the non-custodial parent can request the court to change the visitation hours to suit his or her schedule. However if the non-custodial parent fails to make an application for changes to the visitation hours, the custodial parent may apply to the court for sole custody.
The answer above should not be relied upon as legal advice. The information provided above is based on insufficient facts and only speaks to a general opinion based on those insufficient facts. No warranty is provided that the answer is correct. No attorney-client relationship has been formed with me until a signed written contract is complete. For an official opinion, it is advised you seek legal counsel.
If the visitation is court ordered and the non-compliant parent can provide no compelling and acceptable reasons why they are not adhering, yes.
If there is a court order yes. Then you have to work on this the both of you.
It the non custodial parent alters the court ordered visitation, the other parent does not have to allow the visitation, unless it was altered in court. If it was not altered in court, the parent can file for contempt of court.
Only the court has the power to deny visitation rights.
A child in the state of Alabama can not opt out of visitation with the non custodial parent until the age of 18. If the child is persistent in the fact that they wish visitation to end, this needs to be ordered by a judge of the court.
They must follow the visitation schedule.
If there is no court mandated agreement that ensures the noncustodial parent visitation rights, then yes they can.
