At what age can a child stop visitation with non-custodial parent?

Cut Off, LA |

My 9 year old son hates visiting his dad. It's only three streets away and I don't see that there is anything wrong. I have tried everything to change his feelings about this but nothing is working. He realy wants to know "How long will I have to keep going there?"

  1. He's only 9 years old and is not old enough to make the decision that he does not want to visit with his father. The courts expect you to encourage a close relationship between your son and his father. The courts expect his father to encourage a close relationship with you. you should encourage him to visit with his father and not address his concerns about going to his father's house as long as see anything wrong with the father's house.
