Visitation interference: Things you need to know

If you have visitation rights with your children, it's important to stick with the agreed-upon schedule whenever possible. Not only does this provide your children with stability, but it also insures that you get to spend time together.

While some people never run into trouble with visitation interference, this could come into play at any time. Here are some things you need to keep in mind:

  • You can talk it out with the other parent. If they're constantly changing the schedule or keeping your children from visiting with you, ask if there's a problem. This is the best way to clear the air and get back on track.
  • Don't stop making child support payments. If you have visitation rights and are also required to pay child support, you may assume that withholding this money is the best way to get your ex's attention. Doing this could backfire, thus leading to less time with your children in the future.
  • Keep an open line of communication. It's not always easy to communicate with an ex, but doing so can keep you on the same page with your co-parent. If face-to-face conversations are difficult, stay in touch via text or email. Also, stick to discussing topics that are relevant to your children.

Visitation interference is extremely frustrating, as you don't get to spend as much time with your children as you would like and are entitled as a parent.

If you've tried to work things out but your ex continues to interfere, it's time to learn more about your legal rights. You may have to take swift action to get everything back on track.
