YOU cannot deny any custody or visitation. Only the court can make an enforceable decision regarding these matters. State laws vary.

If physical abuse is the case, the custodial parent will need a record of the abuse and should call the police, take pictures to record the effects, and try to have dis-interested witnesses present at the time of any contact between the parents. If there is no abuse to the children, or no abuse in the presence of the children, it is unlikely to make any change in the court decision for joint custody. It may compel the court to make some order for supervised exchange of the children for visitation.

Only the court can make any decision, especially regarding custody. If the non-custodial parent is abusive to the children it may be very good grounds for a sole custody arrangement. It may also encourage the court to provide for supervised visitation.

Visitation is a different issue than custody. Visitation is the means for the non-custodial parent to have a relationship with the children and build that relationship. A court generally regards this as semi-sacred. A custodial parent should NOT deny visitation. If it is necessary to curtail visitation for the real safety of the children, the custodial parent should immediately file a request for a change of visitation. Otherwise, a court may frown on a parent who denies visitation. In some states, continual denial of visitation can be grounds for a change of custody.

No, and you would be breaking a ton of laws as you have to get custody rights first, and have the other parent either stripped of their rights or they have denounced their rights. Otherwise, a judge is definitely going to send you to jail for kidnapping and will just as likely deny any appeal for custody.

Can a child that lives wit the mother that have joint custy of the child can he move to another state with the father?

That depends on the state where the custody order was issued and the order's provisions, but in general, joint custody implies that both parents have equal say in decisions affecting a child's life and either parent has the power to ok or deny a decision such as a move, especially a move that would prevent a hardship to another parent in terms of their parenting time with their child. In other states, any child under a custody order is under the custody of the state as well, so any proposed move not only must be ok with both parents, it also requires permission of the court. When in doubt, refer to the custody order, or at least provide the legal state (or country if outside the USA) of the child's current legal residence.

If there is no joint custody then yes, the mother can deny visitation rights to the father.

How do you discredit a narcissist in a custody battle.?

What an awful thing to want to find out. Being a narcissist is not reason enough to be denied custody. If you don't already have reasons to give as to why the person shouldn't have custody then why have a 'battle'? Why not share custody? I'm not sure that the original question mentioned that they were trying to deny the narcissist custody or that the narcissim was the only reason. However narcissim can manifest in many ways and some of them are very abusive and thus itis relevant to a custody battle. I would say the best way to discredit a narcissist is to provide evidence of the lies but remain calm and collected even when you are on the receiving end of lies and/or mental abuse.

Could the father obtain full custody of his child if the mother is exposing the child to drug and alcohol abuse?

Logic would dictate that the answer would be, absolutely. Unfortunately, the reality is, maybe. In circumstances such as described the judge will often deny full permanent custodial rights and allow an unfit parent the opportunity to take parenting classes and a rehabilitation process. Generally in such a situation the responsible parent is awarded temporary full custody and the unfit parent is allowed supervised visitation until he or she sucessfully fulfills the court mandated obligations.

Not unless there is a court order in place addressing visitation. Each parent has as much right to the child as the other parent.
