What can a noncustodial parent due to gain visitation rights, or to enforce them?


If a parent is denying the other parent access to the child, the other parent can try calling the police to enforce the divorce decree. If this is not effective, the parent whose rights are being denied should consult with his/her attorney about the options, which include filing a family access motion.
