I went through a very bad divorce, my husband physically and emotionally abused me in front of my children. My 16 year old son during the divorce proceedings expressed to his father that he wanted nothing to do with him and my 22 yr old has since cut ties as well. I have tried explaining to them that our divorce is between us and try to facilitate a relationship with their father which they all refuse. The divorce was in NJ and we are now in Florida and it will soon be time for my daughter to go to NJ for her court ordered visitation and she has been to the point of tears. She cries and and begs me not to force her to go but its in the court order that he gets her. I am scared to get in trouble but do i have to force her to go against her will at this age?I can not even get the child to get on the phone and speak with him :( she refuses and when I do force her on the phone she will sit there and just give him the silent treatment and wont speak to him. She said that she is scared, and that she just wants nothing to do with him. But being there is a court order I dont want to go against that but at the same time I dont want to keep upsetting my daughter. She will be 12 later this year, can she decide what she wants?
