If the mother and father cannot work out reasonable parenting time, the father should file a motion to set more specific parenting time. The grandparents can file a motion for grandparent visitation.

Whether or not the father sees the child, he has to pay court ordered support. If he is being denied vistation, his remedy is going back to court and telling the judge - not stopping his child support.

A mother can request an increase of child support when the father's income has increased.
