Sometimes a child simply doesn’t want to visit the non-residential parent, which puts the custodial parent in a very precarious situation. Because the nonresidential parent isn’t around every day, they may feel disgruntled or hurt thinking the custodial parent is trying to pull the child away. At other times plans and schedules change for the residential parent and they’re in a bind regarding visitation. How do we adjust to these situations?
Do we force our child to visit regardless of how they feel? Do we ask our ex-partners if they are willing to make other arrangements? How are issues surrounding child visitation handled appropriately? Before making any decisions about these dilemmas, it’s best to speak with an experienced San Antonio child custody lawyer such as myself so that problems are handled effectively.
