A: It depends on what the custody order or parenting plan says about time with the other parent. Review those, or use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local family law attorney to review all the circumstances and advise you.

A: If she has no rights to visitation then you do not have to send her. If she has out-of-state visitation rights you may have to send her. Review your custody order.

A: Based on what you say, she has no court ordered rights. Therefore, you ha no obligation to send her. Mom would have to file a motion to obtain parenting time.
