Is there a court order in place ordering visitation?
Thank you for your question.
If there is a court order in place, then you must force your child to go to the visitation. Failure for you to do this will result in your being in contempt of the court order which may carry the penalty of jail and/or a fine.
However, if you fear for your child's safety because of your ex' involvement in drugs, then you should go into court to have the order modified. However, merely ignoring the order is not a good option.
Please let me know if you have any other questions, or require clarification of this matter. Otherwise please hit "ACCEPT", so I may receive credit for my response. Tips and feedback are also appreciated.
Best of luck to you!
