A very often asked question in our Family Law andDivorce firm is "Must I let my Ex see the children when he/she is not paying
The short answer is that you are still required to allow visitation. The right of visitation and the duty to pay child support are completely separate, and normally the court will enforce these separately. If support orvisitation provisions are constantly violated you may consider going back to court to handle the problem.
Lastly, when support payments get behind and you are exchanging the children, it is important not to use the children as pawns for visitation,parental alienation or returning them.
If you believe the paying party is capable of paying support you may elect to have aqualified family law attorney represent you in court. While there are many deadbeat parents who elect not to pay child support, a serious effort is at hand in our governmental agencies to provide aggressive enforcement for child support.
