Customer Question

Received an email for more information. Sorry, that I have not answered. I'm a full time security officer and part time college student. My name isXXXXX asking for assistance to have a relationship with my two daughters. Oldest is 19 and youngest is 17. I was denied visitations by their dad beginning in 2009 to present. I'm not sure what is needed extra from me pertaining to extra information. I wish for a relationship with my daughters and no more interruptions from their dad and step mom.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

Was there a custody and visitation order in place? Did you ever go to court between 2009 and now with a motion for contempt against the father for not allowing you visitations as ordered?

Are you looking for legal information or strictly relationship advice?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I've informed JustAnswer that The Divorce Decree states that I can not deny support payment and the father of my two daughters can not deny me visitations which he has been doing. I want this stopped and have a relationship with my daughters and their step mom to stop thinking she can tell me that I can't see my girls. Or my girls don't want to see me. My daughters dad allows his wife to treat me with disrespect in front of our two daughters. My daughters are tired of all the bickering and so am I.

Thank you for your response.

If you have a court order that he is not complying with, your sole recourse is that you should be filing a motion in court as a motion for an order to show cause for contempt of court and provide your evidence of his not complying with the court order.

If he is denying you the visitation, you cannot stop support (which I am sure you know), but if you prove in court he is denying visitation as a penalty for this in your motion for contempt, you can ask the court modify custody and grant you the physical custody based on his intentional and willful disobedience to the court's order.

This is your real only option legally at this point if he will not change his behavior.
