Description

Pursuant to the Legislature' s request, on November 11, 1995, the Minnesota Supreme Court issued an Order establishing the Advisory Task Force on Visitation and Child Support Enforcement ["Task Force"]. Mirroring the language set forth in the legislative request, the Order establishing the Task Force directed the Task Force to examine the extent to which (1) custodial parents deny noncustodial parents court-ordered visitation and other parental rights; (2) noncustodial parents fail to exercise their court-ordered visitation; (3) lack of access to the court prevents timely resolution of visitation matters; and (4) visitation impacts noncustodial parents' compliance with court-ordered child support. Upon completion of its study, the Task Force was directed to make recommendations regarding: (1) methods for resolving visitation matters in an efficient, nonadversarial setting that is accessible to parties at the lowest possible cost; (2) statutory changes that would encourage compliance with court-ordered visitation; and (3) the effectiveness and impact of a policy linking visitation and payment of child support.
