Can my ex refuse visitation because I am behind on child support?

Failure to pay child support is not a reason to refuse rightful visitation.  However, it is very difficult to ask a court to award or enforce visitation in the best interest of the child when you have failed to act in the best interest of the child by refusing to pay child support.

If you cannot pay your child support due to an unexpected job loss or financial hardship, you can ask the court for a temporary reduction of your payments.  However, as soon as you are able to pay, you will have to pay back the reduction amount.  Just because you lost your job or you are having financial difficulty your child support obligation does not get excused.
If you are having child support issues.  I can help!
