Child support and visitation rights are separate issues. The court will determine both and will usually order the noncustodial parent to pay child support and the custodial parent to make the child available for visits. The custodial parent has a duty to obey the court order as to visitation, even if the noncustodial parent cannot or will not pay the support. The court can enforce its orders against either parent.
