Q: at what age can a child say he/she does not want to go on visitation with the non-custodial parent, In NY state
A: David’s Answer: There is no bright-line rule, but generally if a child is high-school age, the Judge pretty much goes along with whatever his/her preferences are. That said, one would need to assess many other factors, such as the nature of the agreement, existence of any alienation, age/development of the child, etc., to render a definitive opinion.
