Question: There is a court order for visitation for my two kids to see their grandparents. what if the kids don't want to go?
Answer: The court has ordered the children to visit. If you withhold visitation, you will be in violation of a court order and could face legal consequences. Under A.R.S. Section 25-414, violating a visitation order can result in the following consequences: you may be found to be in contempt of court; the court may order additional visitation time to compensate the grandparents; you may be required to attend a parent education program at your expense; you may be required to attend family counseling at your expense. You do not say what the ages of the children are. If we are talking about 15 or 16 year olds, the court may be willing to consider the child's wishes. However, as the parent, you are the person legally responsible for complying with the court order.
