Failure To Pay Child Support Is Not An Excuse
In the state of Illinois, a parent may not deny court-ordered visitation to their former spouse for a failure to pay child support. A parent that is owed support may retain an attorney to enforce the court order and appropriate legal steps may be taken to secure child support. However, you may not take the law into your own hands by denying court ordered visitation.
If your right to visitation is being denied or you have denied visitation because of child support, the best thing to do is to contact an experienced family law attorney who can advise you of your legal rights and responsibilities. Contact us to learn more. We offer a free consultation.
