My 11 year old daughter has not had much of a relationship with her father. She just turned 11 and tells me she dosnt wanna go to his house for his parenting time anymore. I want badly to support her and her decision. There has been some instances of emotional mistreatment but never any physical abuse. She says she doesnt feel right, like she dosnt belong there. His new wife and step daughter have been telling her she isnt even his real daughter and that she makes them all unhappy when she comes there. That was the last straw for me. And i havnt made her go since. There is no age law in our state they base it on the maturity of the child and i believe she is mature enough to make this decision for herself. Im sure i will hear from the court soon for contempt charges but what is more important my daughters emotional well being or some stupid court order. she dosnt want to go i feel she shouldnt have to. HELP!!
