Can a spouse withhold visitation because the other spouse will not pay child support?
Can a spouse stop paying child support because the spouse with custody will not give visitation and access?

What can a spouse do if the ex-spouse refuses to pay child support?
If your ex-spouse has been ordered to pay either child support or maintenance and fails to do so, you can ask the court to hold your ex-spouse in contempt of court. If the ex-spouse is found to be in contempt, your ex-spouse could be imprisoned. Another available remedy is to garnish his/her wages; the disobedient ex-spouse's employer will deduct money from his/her paycheck and pay you directly.
