If the parent who has the child most of the time won't let me see the child, I don't have to pay child support, right? 

On the issue of the child support, that is a separate obligation of yours, unattached to you’re the other parent’s obligation to allow visitation.  You may be held in contempt of the order, fined, possibly jailed and be ordered to pay attorney’s fees if child support is delinquent. Courts in the Dallas area have little tolerance for failure to pay child support just because you choose not to. Refusal of visitation is not a valid reason to fail to pay court ordered child support.  If the other parent is refusing visitation and you are not paying child support, the court can hold you both in contempt.
