Maybe. There's a lot more information needed to give you a well reasoned answer. I suggest that you schedule a consultation with an experienced family law attorney in your area to explain the entire situation to her/him.
I received paperwork for a court date and in the paperwork it is stating that all of my children are to be present but my 17 year old daughter is refusing to go what do I do and can I be held responsible if she still refuses the day of court
Tell your daughter there's a court order requiring her to attend and if she doesn't the court may punish you as the custodial parent for not having control over your child. If she doesn't want to say anything when she gets to court, that's a whole different story.

You need to consult immediately with an experienced family law attorney. We cannot advise you to violate a court order but, depending on your discussion with an attorney in person, you may be justified in holding the child back if there is a serious risk to him being with his dad right now.
In addition to Attorney Boyd's excellent suggestion, you can also look into whether the father left a estate that might be available from which your daughter might be able to claim a share. You'd want to check with the Register of Wills in the county where he passed away or where he resided.
Your question confuses me a bit. Are you asking as the relocating parent or the non-relocating parent? Either way, I've attached a link to the PA custody statute. Relocation is in Section 5337. It should answer your questions.
I showed the mediator our most recent custody order which he replied this was 2015. It is our most recent order. I showed other documents that our kids live with me. How is the support mediator supposed to determine who our kids live with when I say they reside with me and he claims they live with... Read more »
I suggest that you obtain a copy of the custody docket, which should show that the most current order is the one from 2015. Then gather up documentation that tends to show that the children reside with you - school records, doctor's records, extracurricular activities rosters, etc. Anything that...Read more »
I suppose it's possible but without all the facts it's impossible to know what to tell you. You should consider consulting with an attorney experienced with CYS matters to obtain assistance in getting through this.
You really need to discuss tyour situation with an experienced family law attorney. There is absolutely no way anyone here can help you. You need to show your paperwork to an attorney in person and should you should do so very soon.
I think an awful lot more information is needed before this question can be answered. If you and your husband are on decent terms, perhaps he'd allow you to discuss this with his attorney, although, if you're the victim of the abuse, that may not be permissible. have you considered going to one of...Read more »
Not really because it wouldn't become a court order until an adoption petition as well as a petition to terminate parental rights had been filed. If the person wanting to give up rights thinks doing so will relieve him/her of support obligations, no such luck. If this actually has to do with not...Read more »
My daughter has been dating her boyfriend for over 2 years. They are 17 and 16 yo. Recently, after an argument with his parents, they told him he's no longer allowed to date my daughter. They've also told me he's no longer allowed to associate with her, or our family. Before this, our family has... Read more »
Not unless there's a written agreement that he will do so. In PA, a parent's support obligation ends upon the child's attainment of 18 years of age and graduation from high school, unless the child suffers from a serious physical or mental impairment.
Will she be told to find a job. I have been giving money to her without a court order since we split in 2017. I am finally moving on and have my own expenses and finally found a new place to live after spending time with my parents. I also pay support for a child who is the states custody... Read more »
It's really not possible to provide you with detailed answers because every case is different. I expect that she will likely receive both spousal and child support based solely on what you've said here. You really should sit down for a consultation with an experienced family law attorney to discuss...Read more »
