A: Laws can't cover every eventuality. If the children don't have heat in the home/apartment where they are having visitation, a motion should be filed with the Court to curtail visitation or to hold noncustodial parent in contempt.

Now, the problem with something like this is PROVING it. You put the children in a position to have to testify against the non-custodial parent, which often makes these people irate . . . because it's never THEIR fault, remember?
