Can I deny visitation as the custodial parent?
Visitation is for the benefit of the children and they have a right to spend quality time and be loved by both parents. The custodial parent cannot deny the visitation of the non-custodial parent even if the children do not want to visit the non-custodial parent anymore. Also, the non-custodian parent cannot deny visitation because of ill feelings towards their ex-spouse. But, if the children are endangered or harmed during visitation with the non-custodial parent, there is the option to ask the court to change the visitation terms of the divorce.
If you are thinking of taking this route and are in the Tampa Bay area, make sure to consult a Brandon Legal Group divorce attorney. Your initial consultation is complimentary.
