    Julia’s Answer

    You will need to file an enforcement. Document each time that you have attempted to pick up your child and have been denied visitation. Consult with an attorney regarding enforcement.

    Julia’s Answer

    You will still be able to get a divorce, but should consult with an experienced attorney in your area to make sure you complete all the legal requirements. There are different steps and requirements depending on if any children were born during the marriage and how much property you have. Good luck.

    Julia’s Answer

    You should contact an experienced attorney to start the divorce process. If he agrees for you to move, then it would be a simple process. If he does not agree, you can ask the court to allow you to move and based on the facts you provided, you have a good case since he is not an involved parent. Good luck!

    I've been divorced since 2012 & have full custody (one elementary-aged child). Dad vocalizes interest in the child, but is largely uninvolved (evidenced by only 5-min phone calls every 4-5 months & no visits unless I initiate). He is in arrears on...

    I agree with my colleagues. Unless your decree requires you to do so or he is a sex offender, you do not have to give notice.

    I agree with Mr. Boyer's answer. You could have a reimbursement claim for upgrades made, but you will need to discuss the details with an experienced attorney.
    Good luck.

  • If my sons father doesn't pay child support, can I deny him visitation?

    We have a custody agreement and this is the first time he has missed his child support payment.

    Julia’s Answer

    No, visitation and support are two separate issues. You cannot deny him visitation during his designated periods of possession. If he refuses to pay, you will have to file an enforcement suit to ask the court to order him to pay.

    Julia’s Answer

    Do you have a signed Settlement Agreement or just a Rule 11? The type of document you have will make a difference as to what hearing can be set and what will be incorporated in the final order. I strongly advise that you consult with a divorce attorney in your area right away because it is impossible to give you all the answers without reviewing your documents. Good luck.
