Best Answer

The non-custodial parent should file for visitation rights for the child in the county where custody was given.

If the parent who has custody of the child is preventing the non-custodial parent the right of visitation they can be found in contempt of court if visitation has already been established.

If the custodial parent has too many repeated contempts filed against them, custody can be switched to the other parent.

If there is a court order for visitation privileges it must be obeyed. Visitation and child support are treated as two entirely different issues. Just as an obligated parent is in contempt of a court order when they do not pay the mandated child support a custodial parent could be in contempt for not adhering to the visitation terms.

If the father is paying child support does that mean he has visitation rights?

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.
