What age does a divorce child become free of the visitation schedule?

I’m trying to figure out what age a child is no longer required to abide by the visitation schedule, which was originally put in place by the court at the time of the parent’s divorce.

Can anyone provide any insight on this?

      Depending on your state, but I believe that it is 18. But I think that you can speak for yourself in court as far as visitation when you become 14. Check with your state Juvenile and Domestic courts.

      When my son reached the age of 10, I figured he knew what he wanted. It just worked out that he decided where he wanted to be and when.

      Well this is a court order. So you can’t just act flipped and say I’m not going. If you want the visitation to change you go to court and get it changed. A child is required by law to abide by the visitation schedule.

      When the child reaches adulthood. At that time, the "child" may choose to visit or not. Also the child support payments will stop. If on the other hand, the non custodial parent is abusive, the court can be petitioned to have visitation to abusive parent stopped, but the child support will stay in effect until child reaches adulthood. If the visitations seem to be causing undue stress or seems to negatively affect the child, again once proof has been established, the courts can rule on the visitation.

      The visitation schedule is put in place for the parents to follow. Children don’t get to just quit visiting.

      It’s usually the same age that the child can be criminally tried as an adult and that varies from state to state ( now under special circumstances a child under that certain age can be tried as an adult, I am talking about the general law for each state-the line that separates juvenile offender status from adult offender status)

      In NY state it’s 17.
