In South Dakota, If my spouse stops paying child support, can I stop him or her from seeing the kids?

 

No. Child support and child custody are two separate issues. It is in the best interest of children to have a relationship with both parents (absent abuse or neglect). If your spouse is not paying child support, you will need to take him or her to court to resolve the matter.
