A: If a court has put an order in place giving the other parent the right to visitation then it is your duty to make sure she goes. I realize that this may be difficult. A possible solution to your problem would be do find out why your daughter doesn't want to go. Once you find out what daughter's reasoning is then perhaps you could agree with the other parent to do something that solves the problem. If you fail to agree with the other parent, then you still have the duty to make your daughter go, it isn't her choice.

If there has been a material and substantial change in your circumstances and the visitation order is not workable then it is possible that you could file for a modification of the order. To make a determination of whether a modification would solve your problem and is possible you should consult with an in person attorney. They should listen to the whole story and review your current order and let you know exactly how to proceed given your specific circumstances.
