What is the name of your state? Oregon
My 14 year old daughter does not want to visit her father anymore and has told him so. He has come back and said he is going to make her come. When she first approached me about this, I asked her why and she stated that she doesn't like her step mother, and that she has asked her dad to be the one parenting her and he continues to allow the step mom to parent. Friends and athletics are also part of the reason as well. She states that she is always grounded when she goes and all he does is work and leave her and her 12 year old brother home alone.
I told her when she first approached me about it, that this was an issue between her and her father and that I wasn't going to get in the middle of it. I also told her that her actions may have consequences and she will have to accept them.
At first he didn't press the issue and allowed her to stay home, but now has come back and stated he is going to enforce the visitation schedule.
My question is, does she have any rights in this issue and can she ask the courts to amend her visitation schedule?I just don't know what to tell her when she asks, "Can he make me go?"What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state?
