Is it the law that the father is responsible to pay for supervise visitation when the mother is requesting it ?

Q: I have been granted Sole legal and physical custody of my son, the mother has not seen him for a year do to her issues with no license do to failing to pay child support, and CPS issues.

A: David’s Answer: There is no definite law one way or the other, but the general rule driven by caselaw precedent is that each party pays a “pro-rata share” of such costs. “Pro-rata” means a comparison of each party’s incomes in order to determine who pays what percentage.
