Visitation Rights

Many parents don’t understand that child support and visitation are not one and the same. Although child support should and must be paid, most states separate visitation from paying support. This means that a non-custodial parent has the right to see their children, even if they are not supporting them financially. This issue may be controversial, but must be respected.

Unfortunately some residential parents have the “you must pay to play” mentality when it comes to the kids. The children are innocent and should not be held hostage from either parent. Oftentimes, they don’t understand what child support and visitation is all about. They simply love mom and dad, and want both parties to be active parents in their lives. Keep adult business in its proper place.

If there is an issue with receiving child support, there is proper legal protocol to follow. If there is communication with the other party, contact them to express your concerns concerning a lack of financially responsibility. Give them a chance to explain their situation, or circumstance and make a decision accordingly. Child support has to paid, but when both parties are in agreement things can be worked out in a positive manner.

If you are not in good communication, or cannot locate the non-residential parent, you will have to contact child support to establish an order.

Another important aspect of child support and visitation, is to obtain a court ordered visitation schedule if you are the non-custodial parent. If you do not have this order, you don’t have any rights in certain states. A court ordered parenting time schedule establishes neutral ground. It creates a fair plan of action for both parents to abide by. There are certain pick up and drop off times for both parties. There is also a set standard on summer vacations, and holidays as well.

Having this order may eliminate various arguments, because everything is set in stone. But there are some exceptions to this rule. Most courts would rather that both parents simply work things out without having to abide by the order. It’s better if it can work out this way, but unfortunately this is not always the case. Sometimes it’s best to religiously go by the court ordered schedule to avoid any confrontation. This is true, especially when the children are present.

Some Benefits of having a court ordered schedule are as follows:

  1. The non-custodial parent can have access to all school, health, or agency records or reports that are related to and concerning the child(ren);
  2. The non-residential parent can visit any child day care center which the child attends.
  3. The non-custodial parent can attend any student activity in which the child(ren) participate.

So keep these factors in mind when dealing with child support and visitation issues. Children don’t understand the full scope of the situation, and this is adult business. They need both parents in their lives if all possible. This will give them a better chance to grow up as mature and healthy adults. Always remember that the kids are your number one priority. Be sure that your planning and decisions are pleasing to them.

Most people don’t realize that child support is a legal situation. Certain individuals can even go to jail surrounding this issue. We realized that most people who need child support help cannot afford an attorney. That's why Child Support America.com invested in a low cost legal service to provide to our VIP members. You must realize that child support and the legal system will not take your situation seriously without legal counsel of some sort. It’s not fair, but its how the system works.

Don’t go up against the child support system alone. The system doesn’t play around and neither should you.

Trust us, the plan is priceless.

In The News................


Celebrity in The News BOBBY BROWN again

After spending 18 years battling in court over child support, Bobby Brown has come to a mutual agreement with his ex Kim Ward. The two have two children together, LaPrincia, 20, and Bobby Jr..

In April, Brown reportedly requested a reduction in the $5,500/month that he had been paying Ward, saying that he had no income at the time. Though no figures were disclosed, and neither Brown nor Ward were actually present in court, Norfolk Register of Probate Patrick McDermott told the Boston Herald of the events,

The big issue was college expenses and how to handle those going forward. But it was quick and uneventful, and they seem to have wrapped up all the outstanding matters.”

Brown has fallen behind in the past, resulting in time behind bars twice. On one occasion he was $45,000 behind, and on another, $22,000.

Along with LaPrincia, and Bobby Jr., Brown also has a 25-year-old son Landon, 17-year-old Bobbi Kristina with ex-wife Whitney Houston, and 1-year-old Cassius with current girlfriend Alicia Etheridge.
