15 yo not wanting to see dad

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

My 15 year old does not want anything to do with her dad we had court today for a protection from stalking order which was granted to me but not to her because the judge said that he has a right to see her she doesn't want to have anything to do with him because of false promises and says he'll pay stuff and then he never does and he just falls through on a lot of things and she's tired of it also he was arrested for meth charge back in November and has had arrests since then. I've heard from many she's old enough to say no!

This judge wasn't there to hear a custody case, he was there to issue protection orders. I fail to see how he is stalking his child if he has legally enforceable court orders to see her. Basically, if your 15 year old doesn't want to see her father any more, unless she is at risk, then you have to go back to court for a custody and visitation hearing. From what you state, she isn't at risk, so time to go back to court. If you don't have the money for it, then she's going to have to suck it up.

She probably is (depending on your state laws), but you need to go to court to specifically address it if he has a current court order for visitation.
