if a parent has a modified possession set up for visitation back in Dec.2011 consisting of 5 steps they have to complete before moving on to normal visitation (which still hasn't completed) and has went a whole yr with only one visit and no contact what so ever aside from the one visit can that parent lose their visitation rights even though they pay $20 to $30 of the $226 they are supposed to pay for child support

I would suggest that you talk to a local attorney in your county. You might want to just let the current order remain in place and leave it alone. Obviously, the person is not following the court order and not attempting to do what is necessary to be involved in the chid's life.
Eventually you might want to attempt to terminate parental rights if there is a "new daddy" ready, willing and able to step into the "shoes" as daddy. However, this is time consuming and expensive.
You would need to meet with an experienced family law attorney in your county to determine what steps you would need to do this. You would have to be married to the person to accomplish this task.
