If this is a court ordered visitation, then your child does not get to say she does not want to go and gets to stay home with you. Her father can put you in contempt of court if you do not send her on visits. Have you tried to talk to her to see why she does not want to go? Have you spoken with her dad to see how she is once she is there? You need to find out those answers. No judge is going to stop visitation because a kid does not want to go. The only time a judge does this is when there is danger to the child and it has been proven.
