Visitation with 15 yr. old
« on: Mar 12, 2009, 03:17:09 PM »
My child lives out of state. I visit every 2 weeks. He says he doesnt want to see me now after some problems. My question is. Should I go anyway, and get reciepts from there showing that I took the time to travel there so I dont get charged with child abandonment later on down the road?

I would try and resolve the issue with him and see if a better schedule might work since he is 15.  Otherwise, depending on the situation, remind him that even though you cannot be there full time as you would prefer, that you are still the parent and he is still your son and that you will be there at the ordered times and then document everything.  Don't guilt trip or demand.  Just if he's not wanting to go, then just tell him you are sorry that he chooses not to visit with you, that you will miss him but you understand that he is growing up and that you will be back next time.
