If their parent is not present to take advantage of their court ordered visitations the custodial parent should return to court to change the order, especially if there is a concern for the child's safety. The child has the right to be in the care and custody of the non-custodial parent during visitations and should not be forced to spend their visits with others in the absence of their parent.

Does a child have to visit a parent who is not home and boyfriend has to care for the child?

If it was planned the parent would not be home all day, no. But if we are talking about babysitting for a few hours until they come home from work this should not be an issue. You should discuss the situation with your attorney. If the parent is not present during their scheduled visitations with the child then perhaps the visitation schedule should be modified.
