Your ex wants child support but you can not have visitation?

In the US, child support and visitation are two separate things. You are legally responsible for financially supporting your child rather you have visitation or not. If your ex refuses to allow visitation then you need to petition for court-ordered visitation. If you obtain that and the ex still refuses, then s/he is in violation of a court order and there are consequences for that. If, on the other hand, you don't have visitation because the court refuses to allow it (for whatever reason)...well, that's a different issue.

If the mother deprive the father the right to see his child and he pays child support what are will the courts do for legal relief for him?

If the father has visitation rights and the mother refuses to allow the father those rights, then the father can sue the mother in a civil contempt proceeding. If she doesn't have a good reason for disallowing the visitation then she can be held in contempt of court. There are various remedies including giving the father more visitation to make up for the visitation that was disallowed by the mother or even giving the father custody, but usually, the judge will just order the mother to allow the visits. His paying or not paying child support has nothing to do with whether or not he gets visitation (i.e. he gets visitation regardless of whether or not he is current with child support).


Can a mother get into trouble if the father is paying child support and not seeing the child?

Not if the father hasn't requested a visitation schedule. The mother should allow the father to visit with the child. However, if there is no visitation order in place she won't "get into trouble" if he's is not having visitations with the child. Child support and visitations are two separate issues as far as the court is concerned.Fathers are entitled to visitations. If the mother refuses the father should return to court and request a visitation schedule. The mother will be legally obligated to obey that order.Not if the father hasn't requested a visitation schedule. The mother should allow the father to visit with the child.

Depends on your state, but courts say child support and visitation are two totally different subjects and are not considered together. Father has visitation rights irrespective of whether or not he pays child support.


What rights does a father have for visitation if he is paying child support?

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.
