unless the father is abusing the 17yr old physically or emotionally then there isn't much of a choice.

Court order visitation is mandatory unless the parent with visitation relinquishes his or her right to do so.

The option is for the custodial parent to file a petition on behalf of the minor requesting the visitation order be amended or rescinded.

A 17-year-old would be given the opportunity to present reasons for the request to the judge, likewise, the parent who holds visitation rights would be allowed to file an objection.

There are a couple of options but the best would be to file for a modification of the visitation order if amenable to both parents.

If there is a court order of visitation it must be obeyed. The exception would be if the child would be placed in unsuitable or dangerous circumstances by the visitation.

If Dad has court-ordered visitation then you have to follow it or you are in violation of a court order (and there are consequences for that).

But be aware that the court will not do that without a very valid reason.


Is it violating visitation orders to visit a child at daycare everyday?

Unless there is some sort of concern regarding visitation, such as it needs to be supervised, and the visitation is specific to the location, times, dates etc, then no, this is not a violation of a court order. Since the visitation is happening at daycare, and the child is not being removed from the daycare centre during non-court ordered visitation, there is no legal issue.
