Does the mother have any problem with the father refusing the visitation?
No, he does not. If the mother has no objection or issue with the father not exercising his rights to visitation, he simply can refuse/reject them and leave the boy with the mother. This is not uncommon where one parent simply refuses to exercise their right, so unless the mother wants to actually prevent him from coming back down the road and taking visitation later on, she can modify the agreement if she wanted to but the father can simply advise he will not be exercising his right.
Yes. If this was case whereby she wanted to enforce the visitations and force the father to see the child, she would need to file a motion and seek to hold him in contempt of court. However, if she does not want to see him and has no issue with him refusing visitation, then she can sit idle and neither party needs to do anything, since they are agreeing. Moreover, I am sure you can imagine how hesitant a judge would be to force a father to see their son, if they did not want to, since the best interest of the child could be at issue if you are forcing them to see their son.
