Interference With Visitation
If the Custodial Parent Refuses to Honor Your Visitation Agreement
In every parenting plan, there are very clear instructions included that define how much time and which days the children will spend with each parent. The parenting plan becomes binding on both parents once it has been approved by the court. The parents are required by law to make all necessary accommodations in order to ensure that the provisions of the agreement are met.
In some cases, extraordinary circumstances ? such as work conflicts, illness, car trouble or other issues ? make it impossible for the terms of the agreement to be met. In these situations, most parents make alternate arrangements so that any missed time is made up. When a parent deliberately acts to interfere with the terms of the agreement, however, it can constitute parental alienation and the violation of a court order.
If you are experiencing difficulty because the other parent is not complying with the terms of your parenting plan, you can petition the court for relief. There are specific processes involved with resolving these matters, and it is important that you have an experienced New York child custody attorney representing you from the start.
