If a legally binding visitation order is in place, you cannot violate this order. Instead, you would need to secure a modification in order to deny visitation. You need to have a valid reason to do this, such as:
- The parent has developed a drug or alcohol problem
- The parent is involved in illegal activities
- The parent’s home is unsafe
- The parent or their new intimate partner is abusive
If you feel your children are in immediate danger, contact an attorney to secure an emergency protective order.
