Your husband is the custodial parent of your children and has decided he doesn’t want you to see them anymore. Although this certainly isn’t legal, unfortunately, it does happen. Parents who want to punish their exes often try to deny visitation. Here, a San Francisco child custody lawyer discusses why.
Common Reasons for Attempted Visitation Denial:
- When the non-custodial parent stops or doesn’t pay child support
- The custodial parent doesn’t approve of a relationship in the non-custodial parent’s life, such as a new mate
- The custodial parent believes that the non-custodial parent is engaging in drug or alcohol abuse
- The two parents have religious differences that cause the custodial parent to wish to keep the non-custodial parent away from the children
- The custodial parent fears the non-custodial parent may attempt to abduct the child
- The child doesn’t want to see the non-custodial parent
- The non-custodial parent is in jail
It is not up to the custodial parent to decide if the non-custodial parent has the right to spend time with the child; it is the decision of the court.
