Daughters dad tell her to make a choice

My daughter (10) came back from her dads this weekend and tells me he told her to make a choice. Be a part of his life or not. He's always saying something to upset her. The only reason he sees her now is to look like that good dad to his girlfriend. There is always something negative being said about my fiancé and I. We have been together 4 years and have 2 more children. She doesn't want to go but if she doesn't I will be held in contempt. That's not fair to her! I'm not sure what else I can do. Obviously can't talk to him about it since he says she's lying. Help please!

Get her to keep a diary about her visits - what is said etc and how this makes her feel. THEN later on, go for sole custody and cite her diary as evidence of her feelings in the matter. She really is old enough to make a choice.
