The matters of child support and visitation are two separate issues. Child support, or lack of paying, does not and should not affect visitation. If you have an Order regarding visitation in place, then you have the right to see your children as scheduled, even if you are behind on child support. While the other parent cannot use child support as an excuse to deny you visitation, you should try to pay something towards your child support, even if you cannot pay the full amount.
Even though the other parent cannot deny visitation, he or she can enforce the child support order by filing a Contempt action against you. If you are at least making an effort to pay, you cannot be found in Contempt.
