If there is an order of visitation it must be followed unless to do so would place the child in a position of endangerment. If the custodial parent believes the child would be in jeopardy the custodial parent should contact the court immediately to request a change in the visitation order. The custodial parent should never disobey a court order of visitation simply because the child does not wish to see the non custodial parent. To do so could be seen as contempt of court and serious consequences could arise.

If there is no court order the custodial parent can decide whether or not visitation should be allowed and if allowed the terms under which it will occur.

No, a non-custodial parent cannot refuse to send a child home if their visiting times are outlined in a court document. If the non-custodial parent does that, it is contempt of court and they could get fined and even do jail time.

NO! They do not have that right, when non-custodial parent is in compliance with their obligations. The custodial parent MUST notify the non-custodial parent.

Yes, if the state require consent from the legal guardian since the non-custodial parent is not the legal guardian.

custodial parent should take it to court. if the custodial parent keeps the child away from the non custodial parent then the custodial parent could do jail time


18. Until then if the non-custodial parent has court-ordered visitation, it must be followed. If there's a valid reason the child does not want to visit the non-custodial parent, then the custodial parent can go to court and request that the court modify the visitation order. But be aware that the court will not do that without a very valid reason.


Of course. The custodial parent should know where the child will be when she is with the non-custodial parent. If something should happen to the non-custodial parent the custodial parent should know where to get the child. Wanting to keep that type of information secret shows a problem of non-cooperation and a parent who is not thinking of the best interests of the child.

Not arbitrarily. The custodial parent would have to receive permission from the court for the change in residence.


He can choose whatever he likes, but if he actually does it, he'll get in trouble and his non-custodial parent will get in trouble for letting him.


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.
