A person can sue for almost any reason. Whether or not it is a justifiable case is usually the question. Was there emotional and/or physical injury to the plaintiff? Was there any monetary loss? What purpose if any would litigation serve. Lawsuits are not, as a rule timely, inexpensive or even the solution to the problem(s). A counselor/mediator however, might be more helpful.

If a parent's normal visitation is interrupted by a holiday are they entitled to make up the lost visitation time?

Custodial issues are determined by the terms of the original or amended custodial/visitation court order. If the order does not specify the terms of such issues as holidays, it is up to the primary custodial parent (the one whom the child resides) to decide when or if visitation should occur.


Can non custodial parent be denied visitations due t child ilness?

Yes. The court would not sanction a custodial parent for keeping a sick child at home if, for example, they were suffering with the flu. The decision would be in the best interest of the child to be kept comfortable and monitored during the illness. Visitation rights are not simply territorial rights. The non-custodian parent should consider the child's comfort and the perhaps some of the lost visitation time could be made up at another time.

At what age can a child opt out of visitation with the non-custodial parent?

The child cannot opt out in most jurisdictions until they reach eighteen years of age. If the non-custodial parent has court ordered visitation and the child does not go for those visits, then the custodial parent can be held in contempt of court. If there is a legitimate reason why the child does not want to go, then you need to petition the court to change the visitation order. Be aware that courts do not like to deny a parent visitation with their children and will not do so without a VERY compelling reason.When a child refuses to visit the other parent the primary custodial parent must first take steps to determine the cause of the refusal. A professional may be of help at this time. The child may have legitimate reasons and once identified both parents must work together to address the problem. The non-custodial parent may need some advice on how to spend quality time with the child so the child feels both welcome and comfortable in the non-custodial parent's new environment.This is a common mistake made by non-custodial parents. The child misses them and looks forward to spending time with them but that time comes and there is a stranger present. The child's comfort level plunges. Being forced to spend visitations with people other than the parent is not a good idea until the child has had a chance to adjust to the new family dynamics between the child and the parents. The dynamics of coping with the father's new partner should come much later.Uncomfortable sleeping arrangements can make a child reluctant to go for visits. If there are other children in the picture (belonging to the non-custodial parent's new partner) they should be allowed to develop a relationship gradually. A common problem arises for the child whose non-custodial parent makes no special notice of the child during visits and expects the child to spend their time with those other children as part of a new "family unit". In those situations the child has lost a special parent-child connection with the non-custodial parent. The option of spending some private quality time with their parent should always be an option.If the child's concerns are serious and the non-custodial parent will not cooperate, the custodial parent may need to return to court for a modification of the visitation order. On the other hand, when the situation is evaluated by the court it may find that parent alienation is at the root of the difficulties and if serious, the custodial parent may well lose physical custody to the other parent. Alienating a child against the other parent causes irreparable and long lasting harm.


Can a father who has joint custody with the mother stop her from moving to another state with child Before they go to court?

In most situations, a custodial parent must notify the court of an intended out of state move, as it affects the non custodial parent's visitation rights. At that time, the non custodial parent can present evidence as to why they feel that moving the child is not in the child's best interest and petition for a change of custodial rights. The judge may or may not agree, but, will make a decision and change the order for visitation and support as needed. Pending this court action, the non custodial parent can petition the court for a stay or restraining order informing the custodial parent that it is unlawful to remove the child from their state of residence until a decision can be reached. I warn you against using the child as leverage to plot some sort of revenge against your spouse. The Judge can see through these attempts and any kind of leverage that you may have had in splitting travel expenses, or extending visitation periods will be lost. On the other hand, if you can provide a stable home environment for the child and nothing else needs to be changed, such as what school they are attending and if moved the custodial parent will not have a stable home or income, then you may be able to stop it. The court does not care what is best for you, only what is best for the child. In short, yes, you can file for the court to stop the child from moving out of state until the case can be heard. ( your local state laws may differ though so contact a lawyer )

Court ordered visitations are not optional. If the order isn't followed the custodial parent could be found in contempt of a court order and sanctioned by the court.Court orders must be followed until they can be modified by returning to court and placing the issue before the judge. A custodial parent who doesn't honor the standing visitation order is in contempt of a court order and the court can order a modification of the custody order if the contempt continues.

If you give up your parental rights to your child do you have rights to their children?

No you do not. If you gave them up or lost them, you legally have no right concerning anything with them, legally. Look over the paperwork the courts gave you. Make better choices next time. I do not agree with the above post. It is my understanding that if you have visitation rights as agreed upon in Court Documents you have a right to the child. The Custodial Parent may not move and or interrupt your visitation rights.
