Court Rules on Teens Opposition to Visit Father

A judged ruled that the court could not compel a 13 year old who was “vehemently opposed” to visiting his father in the State of New York. In that same case, an appellate judge determined that the father’s pro se motion to suspend child support payments be granted after the motion was denied by a lower court.

The court cited the mother’s “inappropriately hostile” attitude toward the father, Robert Coull, who had not seen the boy since early 2010 and was not kept informed about his schooling and medical history.
