My daughter is 15 and has an estranged relationship with her dad. He only comes around when its convenient for him. Recently he has tried to push that she come for his court ordered visitation. He hasn't tried to enforce it in over 4 years. I have full custody of my daughter. Every time they talk he is mean and degrades her. They dont get along at all and constantly fight. My daughter cries every time they talk and I have looked into counseling to help her handle this.
If you refuse to allow court ordered visitation, you risk being held in contempt and possibly being sent to jail. You may have grounds to modify the current order to reduce or eliminate visitation. Contact a local attorney to discuss this further.

You are technically bound by the court order until it is modified. I'd consider filing to modify the order and eliminate visitation.
