Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
Other info, my child has a developmental disability but is very high functioning.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX researching the matter now.
So ultimately it depends on how much say that you have over your child.
Thanks this is helpful. My child is 16, lives with me and has had some bad experiences with his mother recently and has expressed to me that he does not want to visit her for the time being and definitely not overnight. So it sounds like I'm okay legally if he does not visit his mother, as he wishes, even though it goes against the custody agreement.
Right. But if you can convince him to go, then you have that obligation. But you cannot force him to go.
If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please select the "accept" button. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX good luck to you!
