Can I withhold visitation if I have reason to fear for my child’s safety?

Yes, for the most part you have correctly analyzed the issues. If a noncustodial parent is court ordered to receive parenting time, and the custodial parent withholds the parenting time, the noncustodial parent could file a motion for contempt. The custodial parent could offer reasons why parenting time was withheld as mitigation and/or a defense. These are all just very general statements. Discuss your specific situation with your attorney to get your questions answered and follow his or her advice.
