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.

18. Until that age if the parent has court-ordered visitation it has to be followed. If there is a valid reason (and it must be a very valid reason) the child does not want to visit with the other parent, you need to petition the court to modify the visitation order.

18. Until then, if the parent has court-ordered visitation, it has to be followed. If there is a legitimate reason the child does not want to visit the parent, the custodial parent can petition the court to revise the visitation order.

No. The child doesn't get to decide until the age of 18. Until then, if there is court-ordered visitation, it must be followed. The child does not have the option of refusing. If there is a *legitimate* reason that the child does not want to visit the non-custodial parent, then the custodial parent needs to go back to court and request that the visitation order be modified.


Yes. The child is a minor and is not allowed to decide. Any changes in visitation, custody or child support must be made through the court that issued the order.


Age 18. Allowing them to choose otherwise is teaching to that the authority of the courts does not apply to them. see link


Children do not decide with whom they will live or whether or not they will adhere to visitation requirements. If there is a conflict relating to custodial issues a judge may interview the minor child as to his or her preference or not, it is entirely at the judge's discretion. In regards to visitation, if it is court ordered the terms of the visitation order must be obeyed or the custodial parent will be in contempt of a court order. If there are mitigating circumstances involved, for example if the custodial parent believes visitation would place the child in an unsuitable/dangerous position, he or she should petition the court for revocation or amendment of the original visitation order.

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.
