May I Withhold Visitation Because My Spouse Will Not Pay Child Support?

No. If you withhold visitation because a spouse will not pay his or her child support, you are taking the law into your own hands and may be held in contempt of court. If your spouse will not pay child support, you should see an attorney who will advise you on how to recover the lost child support payments and to further ensure that your spouse continues to make timely payments in the future.
