If my child’s other parent is not coming to get the child for vistation, can I sue him?
One of the many challenges of being a single parent is not being able to control the actions of the other parent. When a parent consistenly does not choose to visit with a child, it causes hurt to the child and leaves the other parent to explain why the visit did not take place. However, one parent cannot sue the other for missing visitation. In a way, visitation is like the right to vote. One has the right to vote, but does not get penalized for not voting.
If you have questions about Court Ordered vistation, an attorney can help interpret the order for you.
