Withholding of visits with child due to nonpayment of child support:

Boots…no worries on the gender thing.  :$

I have basically had to give up with the whole 'process'. I just couldn't afford to keep going. No I hadn't even got to make it to court.

As far as why I haven't seen my daughter since March… basically my ex-husband continually withholds contact. He uses all different reasons and means including our daughter to do that. Essentially my daughter is being used, in my opinion, as a tool to get to me. The reason I was given for my daughter not seeing me (aged 10 then) was that I didn't ring her on Easter Sunday. The only phone number I had for her was my ex-husbands mobile or home phone.

The stage I am at now is that unless I speak to him (on the phone) then I don't see my daughter. The Protection Order is clear that there is to be only contact by email or text with regard to contact with our daughter. He flatly refuses to abide by the Protection Order in this regard. I have spent hours upon hours at police stations submitting breaches. But due to 'loopholes' only one was applied. He was given a 6 month behaviour bond. It took in excess of a month for the police to even charge him. They had him in for questioning then released him. I was told that they would just have to wait for a traffic officer to maybe pull him up for a traffic violation, and maybe check if there was outstanding warrants before he would be charged. I was told that when i was submitting another breach.

He's withheld contact for the reason that I've taken my daughter, when she was visiting with me, to friends places for BBQ's.

There has just been a never ending stream of reasons.

Withholding of visits with child due to nonpayment of child support:

Thank you for your responses. And so quick….very much appreciated.

To clarify some of my situation, I have so far spend in excess of $20,000 to try and get some sort of contact arrangement put in place. To no avail. My ex-husband, who has care of our daughter through initial mutal agreement has constantly been withholding contact of our daughter with me. There have constantly been a myriad of reasons. There is a Protection Order in place against my ex-husband (post our daughter electing to live with him the majority of the time).

Essentially my daughter has been held to ransom in many different ways. This is just the most recent one.

I do no owe thousands of dollars in Child Support. I don't even owe $200 in child support. I was paying regularly…every fortnight however the past fortnight my own financial situation meant that I could not pay it. Due to the protection order, and other harrassments etc I cannot advise the other parent that it was going to be late.

I have, in writing an admission from my ex-husband that unless I he has the Child Support by Tuesday I will not get to see my daughter. I actually haven't seen my daughter since the end of March. Again, due to reasons that my ex-husband has imposed.

Again, I thank you all for your prompt and informative responses.

Withholding of visits with child due to nonpayment of child support

Hi,

I was wondering if someone can give me some advise as to the withholding of contact with my child due to nonpayment of Child Support. I have only not paid one fortnight's Child Support. Basically the Custodial parent is stating that I am not going to see my child unless the Child Support is paid by next Tuesday. There are no court orders in place with regard to contact and visitation. It is a 'Private Collect' situation, as far as Child Support is concerned.

Hope someone can guide me in the right direction as to the law on this. I would appreciate even a link or something to gain more information.

Thanks
