As long as you have permission to pick up the child, if she refuses to comply with the custody order, you can ask the police to enforce the order. If you do not have permission, the father should be allowed to pick up his child even if there is a PFA order against him from your daughter.
It sounds like you are in a situation where the father is able to exercise certain amounts of custody, but because of the PFA, you have to be the one facilitating custody exchanges. You are asking if there are any repercussions to you if either your daughter or the child's father do not make the child available for exchanges.
Realizing that there is only so much information that can be provided online, if you are concerned about going to jail for not having the child for exchanges because the parent is not making it possible, I would say it is highly unlikely. Police in general do not like to become involved in domestic issues. However, one thing you may consider doing is calling the local police department (on their non-emergency number of course) and actually ask what they would do if you were in the situation where your daughter or the child's father did not make the child available for exchanges. They will be able to give you guidance in what to expect.
Although I am doubtful that you would have criminal consequences for the parents' actions, either of them deliberately not letting the other parent exercise custody certainly can affect their custody arrangement. I recommend you speak with a local attorney who is able to go through your situation fully, as there is only so much information that can be provided in this forum.
