My child does not want to go to the other parent for visitation. Does the child have to go? (Brian Schmalbach)
Generally, when you have a court order and the child does not want to go to the other parent that child still does have to go. There are a couple of reasons why the child would not have to go and that would be is if that child were in physical or emotional harm if they were to go to the other parent. If that doesn’t exist, then the child still has to go for their court ordered visitation to the other parent. However, certain things can be done to modify that order so that you can try and accommodate for those child’s wishes. That’s generally when you want to come see an attorney.
