Can the father still have visitation if he is not paying child support but has a court order to pay?

Visitation and child support are two different issues. Legally you can't keep your child from visiting the father on that charge. Some fathers have gotten modified change of custody orders because the mother wouldn't allow visitation.

No, child support and child visitation are two different matters. Neither a father nor a mother can be denied visitation based on the fact that they are not paying child support.

Child support and visitation are two separate issues. The father has the right to request a visitation schedule with his child. Visitation is not dependent on paying child support.

No. Custody and child support orders are separate. A father who is paying child support should request a visitation schedule if he wants to spend time with his child. On the other hand, you cannot make a father spend time with his child is doesn't want to.

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.
