Dear craig:

Greetings. Yes, I believe that the judges do frown on parents that withhold visitation. Now, simply because you cannot agree on visitation and she will not provide you with the amount of visitation you want does not mean that the judge will frown on this.

It sounds to me like your spouse may have an issue solely due to child support. Thank you.

my wife left with our 4 year old son in jan. 2005 I told her if she was leaving then this is a good schedule for him. I work mon. -thur.10 hrs. I said I would pick him up on thur. eve. have him for 3 nights 3 days bring him back sun. eve. she would have him 4 nights 4 days from sun.-thur. because she works every weekend 12 hrs. sat. &sun.since she left she tells me I cannot have him on thur.only fri.-sun.nothing legal has been done as of yet . do judges usually frown on that type of behavior keeping a child from one parent unfairly when both parents are fit?
