TIPS FOR DIVORCING PARENTS – YOU CAN’T UNREASONABLY REFUSE CONTACT OR MAINTENANCE
Contact or maintenance is for the benefit of the children. A common misunderstanding that must be addressed here is that it is unreasonable for either parent to refuse contact because the other parent has not paid maintenance, or for any parent to refuse to pay maintenance because of being refused contact. These are separate issues from one another and can be dealt with either through negotiation, mediation or, if there is no other alternative, by going to Court.
