Unless visitation rights for the non-custodial parent were allowed in the divorce paperwork, the custodial parent is completely within their rights to deny the non-custodial parent visitation....however, the non-custodial parent may sue for visitation rights.
If the court has awarded you visitation rights, then you have those rights legally and they cannot be denied by the custodial parent.
The custodial parent cannot deny visitation of the non-custodial parent if there is a court order in place. Only the court can rescind visitation privileges or terminate parental rights. If there is no court ordered visitation the custodial parent has the right to use their discretion. If however, the non-custodial parent decides to file for visitation rights; the refusal for visitation will not be looked upon favorably by the court unless there are acceptable reasons for it having been done.

No - indeed, some jurisdictions will prosecute for this.
Unless there is a court order which prevents the non-custodial parent from having access to the child, then you should not deny the visitation unless you have absolute proof that allowing visitation is a danger to your child. It's best to speak to a lawyer and find out about modifying any current custodial order that may already be in place if necessary.
Yes they can. The court can deny all visitation if the situation needs it.
Whether or not a parent is paying child support is irrelevant when the issue is visitation rights. If there is a court order for visitation the primary custodial parent must allow it or be found in contempt of court. If there is not a court order in place the custodial parent can make the decision to when, where or if visitation is allowed. Visitation guidelines are usually established during the custodial proceedings.
No. The child is now eighteen and he or she can make their own decision although that may cause trouble if the child still lives with the "custodial" parent.
If there is no court mandated agreement that ensures the noncustodial parent visitation rights, then yes they can.
If you're in the US, the age is 18. Until then, if the parent has court-ordered visitation, it has to be followed. If there is a legitimate reason the child does not want to visit the parent, the custodial parent can petition the court to revise the visitation order. Be aware the court will not deny a parent the right to visitation without a very good reason.
