Can a 9 year old child refuse to go to visitation when a court order is in place stating the child is suppose to go to visitation. Can anything be done to enforce?
Answered on: 9/04/12, 8:33 am by Robert Sher
Yes on enforcement. The custodial parent is responsible for seeing that visitation is complied with. If he/she is acquiescing in the child's refusal, a show cause order can be filed requiring the custodial parent to comply. If the parents are able to communicate with one another on a civil basis, the best course of action would be to arrange a meeting including the child and try and talk through the issues that are motivating the child to resist visitation.
