I have a 13 year old daughter who is supposed to go to her dads every other weekend and instead he doesn't pick her up or stay with her. His mom picks her up every time and she has to stay the entire weekend with them. She rarely even sees him when she visits. She loves her grandparents but doesn't want to go all the time. She is a really good kid and just wants to be at home with me. Does she have to go with his parents?

I am 21 now, My mom and dad divorced when I was 3. From the time I was 3 till 16 my dad kept taking me to court trying to get custody of me.. He never did, but I had to go see him every other weekend. He was ba trucj driver, after awhile it started that my stepmom would pick me up and my dad was never there, if he was there he got there when I went to bed an when I woke up he was asleep, when he would get up it would be to take a shower and leave again. Anyways, if her father isn't never there and doesn't ever hardly see her, then no she doesn't have to go. But you cant just stop letting her go, you need to go talk to the Judge that is dealing with y'alls custody case and when you explain to him whats going on, he shouldn't make her go anymore. He may make her go, on days he will be able to see her or something like that. But, legally if the dad is the one with the visitation rights, and the dad isn't ever seeing her on his visitations, then she doesn't have to go. I went through that for 13 years... I don't know about if the law is different in the state you are in but it shouldn't be. If HE isn't seeing her on HIS weekends, then she don't have to go there. You explain to the judge and he will tell you the same thing!!! Hope this helps you some.
