As primary parent can i refuse the next visitation time

Answer: If you are in the process of divorce and have temporary orders making you the parent with legal decision making authority (custody) and the court has granted your ex visitation with the baby, you cannot deny visitation without running afoul of the Court's order.  Arizona Revised Statutes, section 25-414 sets out the penalties for denying visitation to the other parent.  They can be severe.
