Do you have a visitation order?
Did she move out of state?
When a parent violates a custody/visitation order, the other parent may file contempt proceedings for the court to address the issue. In some cases, attorneys fees can be awarded, make-up visitation can be scheduled, and/or the violations may be cause to modify the custody order.
Further, the law restricts the right of the custodial parent to move away from the noncustodial parent without his or her agreement or without the court's consent, and in some cases, the child custody order has similar restrictions. Violations of either are both also grounds for contempt.
Regarding the child support, in most cases, violation of the visitation agreement does not allow the noncustodial parent to withhold support. The issues are largely seen as separate issues.
I hope this answers your questions. Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.
