When can you Deny Visitation to the Non Custodial Parent?

You can only deny the non-custodial parent visitation if there are legitimate safety concerns.

Otherwise, if a custody agreement or custody order is in place, you, as the custodial parent, cannot deny the non-custodial parent visitation rights. Whether you want to or not, you have to abide by the court order or agreement.

However, if you notice any safety concerns, it is preferable to get in touch with the legal assistance office or attorney, as there are consequences for denying the non-custodial parent visitation. If you or your child are in urgent danger, call the authorities.
