10. If the non-custodial parent is given access, can the custodial parent stop the other from visiting his/her children?

As the non-custodial parent has the right to reasonable access / visitation, a custodial parent cannot stop the non-custodial parent from visiting his/her children unless there is a good reason to do so. An example of good reason is when there is a risk that the access posts risks to the child’s physical or mental well-being.
