Letter: Withholding Visitation

Letters From Our Readers

Dear Susan,

My ex does not pay his child support on time. Should I with hold visitation with the children until he pays up.


Dear Sherri,

The answer is NO, NO, NO. and NO.  Visitation and child support are completely two different issues. With holding visitation is not okay and doing so could cause you to lose custody of your children all together.  If you ex is not paying child support, you need to take it up with the child support office or the court.  Never keep the children from your spouse.
