Parenting and Payments – Not Mutually Exclusive


Tulsa child support attorneyVideo Transcribed: If the other parent isn’t paying child support, do I have to let them see the children? Hi, my name is Jason Sorenson. I’m a Tulsa lawyer at Wirth Law Office, and we’re going to be talking about that today.

So let’s say you have primary custody of the children and the other parent pays child support to help support the children, and lately, they haven’t been paying the child support, but they still want to exercise their visitation rights. Do you still have to let them see the children?

The short answer to that question is, yes, you do. The reasoning for that is child support and the visitation rights that parents hold are two separate issues. So parents aren’t paying for their rights to visit their children. It’s a separate issue. So even if the other parent isn’t paying a dime of child support, they still have their visitation rights. Now, there are other consequences that they can face if they aren’t paying their child support, but one of those consequences is not missing out on their time with the child. Now, this is just general information.
