Ok my husband and I just married almost 6 months ago. He has visitation rights for every other weekend. He had to go to TX for 2 months and last night my SD's mother called and said she wasn't letting me pick her up unless my SD wants to come. I have to call on those weekends and ask if she wants to come, but 'm afraid that she's too loyal to her mother (who hates me for no reason and makes that quite clear to my SD) to even say she wants to come over. Do I have any rights or is there something or someone that can pick up the child when her father can't? I've tried looking over the court orders, but I don't see anything about what happens if he can't pick her up. I'm not at all familiar with this stuff. It would be for the state of Ohio. I really need help to know if there's something I can do to make sure I can still see my SD. If you have any ideas or suggestions I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
