I am sorry to hear of this situation for your son.
Is there a Court Order for the visitation?
Yes, but I am not sure of the details. He was gone for a year.
The mother is also hiding, she will not tell my son where she is.
Then if there is a Court Order, she may not withhold visits
The Child Support is a separate issue
I knew that, but I wanted a proffesional opinion.
I suggest he will want to file a Contempt of Court. This is filed with the Court that issued the Visitation Order
Alright. Well, you asked if this was legal?
It is not legal. And he should file a contempt of court
good enough. thank you.
I can answer any question you have in this regard. But I cannot guess what you need to know.
And you say she is in "hiding"
Well, he may have to get a private investigator to find her location.
Or he can have her served with the Contempt Motion
at her place of employment if he knows it
