Parenting time and support are not dependent on each other. Therefore, the support obligation can only be modified or terminated by court order. The fact that you have parenting time means that your parental rights have not been terminated. If you are being denied parenting time, believe the custody and or the support should be modified, you will need to file a petition with the court asking for such. As there are certain requirements and procedures which need to be followed you most certainly be benefited from having legal counsel.

You can ask that the court order some, very minimal visitation, or you can ask that the court order joint counseling for reunification between you and your daughter. Obviously, the relationship has broken down (I have no idea if it's your fault, the mother's fault, or just bad circumstances), and it is important for your daughter's emotional well-being as she goes into adult relationships that you do everything you can to mend this relationship. Child Support is owed whether or not you are having visitation. If your daughter wants to see you, but her mother is not allowing it, bring the mother back into court immediately and alert the Judge to this situation.
