Yes, they are two completely separate issues. Failure to pay court ordered child support for any reason can result in serious consequences including a contempt of court charge.

Yes. Denial of visitation is a separate matter from child support.

User Avatar

No, child support and child visitation are two different matters. Neither a father nor a mother can be denied visitation based on the fact that they are not paying child support.

User Avatar

Yes, though in California the child support and visitation are linked. The less time you parent the child, the more you pay.

Generally only the child support and visitation schedule are subject to modification.Generally only the child support and visitation schedule are subject to modification.Generally only the child support and visitation schedule are subject to modification.Generally only the child support and visitation schedule are subject to modification.

The mother can if she's not collecting Welfare. In states like Missouri, if being denied visitation, the father can file to have child support put on hold. It also can be stopped after 30 days of extended visitation.

Not legally. If this happens, file a motion in court to compel the other parent to honor the visitation order.

No, and of the two, being denied a father is far most costly to the child and society in general as 85% of crime is committed by those who grew of fatherless.

child support and visitation rights are two totally different things. The answer is no.

User Avatar

it all depends on state that you live in, however, a father has a right to see his children despite his history of child support payments. the mother cannot legally refuse to allow the father to the child or children due to lack of support, unless there is a court order or restraining order that legally allows her to withold visitation. Paying child support and visitation rights have nothing to do with each other.Just because you dont/do pay child support doesnt mean you can/cannot visit your child

Yes. Visitation cannot be denied because of lack of payment of child support. The child support still needs to be paid because there could be jail time involved if there is too much owed and late. BUT, you cannot use visitation priveledges as retribution because (its the law, and) the visitation is for the children, not yourself. The child support is there to assist in the expences of raising children.

California child support enforcement is required to represent you in child support matters; for visitation rights, contact your local bar association and/or legal assistance foundation office.

Child support and visitation rights are two separate things. You don't get visitation automatically just because you pay child support. You have to petition for it in court.

Visitation and child support are separate issues. One does not depend on the other. Parents must provide support for their children. There are many variations in visitation rights and those do not generally affect child support obligations.Visitation and child support are separate issues. One does not depend on the other.

Support and Visitation are separate matters that are addressed separately by the court. However, if you were a participant in a child support case you should have requested a visitation order at the same time. No one is going to do that for you. If you want a visitation schedule with your child then return to the court that issued the child support order and request visitation.

they are completely separate just because you pay child support has nothing to do with visitation, sorry

Child support and visitation are two separate issues. The father has the right to request a visitation schedule with his child. Visitation is not dependent on paying child support.

Child support and visitation are separate issues and giving up visitation does not cancel the responsibility to pay child support. A request to reestablish visitation can be filed even after previously waiving visitation.

How does he have any visitation rights with a custody and child support order?

User Avatar

Child support and custody/visitation are separate issues. You should contact your local courts to file for visitation/custody if the custodial parent is denying visitation.

User Avatar

You have to pay child support because you engaged in behavior which can be expected to produce a child - do you expect the taxpayers to pick up this expense? If the courts have not denied visitation rights to you, feel free to petition for them.

User Avatar

yes if the court orders you to pay child support the court also tells you whether or not you have visitation rights as well so if your advised to pay child support by law and the tell you that you have no visitation then your obligated to pay child support

User Avatar

No. Child support and visitation rights are two separate issues/ The parent being denied visitation must continue to pay the support order. The non custodial parent may find it necessary to file a petition (lawsuit) against the custodial parent to asssure his or her visitation rights are enforced.

It depends I think what state you live in. In Arkansas for instance, child support and visitation are 2 separate issues.
