There is no set age. It all depends on the maturity of the child and what the judge or mediator thinks.

How do you stop visitation of divorced parent?

You probably don't - in general, the law supports the idea that both parents should be in the child's life. If you feel that visitation might harm the child in some way, you can ask the courts to require supervised visitation, or visitation limited to public places.

Can a parent deny visitation to the other parent if child receives bad grades?

No. Visitation rights for divorced or unmarried parents cannot be dictated by the parents in a manner you described. If a parent feels like there have been a change of circumstances or that a parent is acting against the best interests of the child then the parents need to go back to court and modify the child visitation agreement.

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

Do grandparents have legal visitation rights in California?

They don't have any automatic rights, but they do have the right to petition the court for visitation. However, if the child's parents are married then the grandparents can only petition under certain circumstances (ie the parents are separated, the child doesn't live with either parent, etc).

Can the mother keep the child from seeing his dad if he is paying child support?

Yes, they can. My parents are divorced. They got divorced when my mother was 8 months pregnant with me. My father paid child support until he got sick of it. But anyways, my mum kept me, and I'm still with her, 13 years, and same as my sister. :) Payment of child support does not, in itself, confer any right to visitation. However, the custodial parent must abide by any visitation orders. In many States, violation of a visitation order is a crime.

What age can a child decide if they want to go for visitation in Idaho?

It is not up to the child to EVER decide if they want to go to visitation. Visitation is court ordered and the other parent has the RIGHT to see the child. As long as the visitation order is in effect, the child must go to the visitation. This is because parents plot and scheme and brainwash their children into believing that the other parent is the anti christ (custodial parents). Both parents should be encouraging a productive relationship between any child and their other natural parent. The child can decide to do whatever they want when the court ordered visitation expires or they reach the age of 18.
