If the none-cust parent won't work to set up his supervised visits, does the custodial parent still have to take the child to it

Asked over 1 year ago - Southfield, MI

Custodial parent has tried to contact non-custodial parent to arrange his visits, he has been none responsive. Is she still required to take the child to the visit, even if the supervisor might not be there?

    Answered . After several missed visits (make sure you carefully document all the missed visits in writing, in a journal or log or something like that), you should file a Motion with the Court requesting that his supervised time be suspended due to the father's non-compliance, and the extremely negative impact it has on the child (as to the father's missed visits). As a parent myself, I am truly sorry you and your child are going through this. I wish you all the best of luck. Warmest regards, Matt Catchick.
