Question: What can I do if I have joint custody of my children and the father refuses to let me have contact with them? The father of my children is refusing to let me have contact with my kids. I can not call them on the phone or see them unless it is at my mothers house.Can he do this if we have joint custody?He is refusing to do so because I will not give him money, but there is no order for child support.

Answer: ►▬◄ What are your court orders and why don't you set up a voluntary child support order? If something were to happen to his health, resulting in him filing for welfare, they will go after you for retroactive child support, so you better get an order done now.
