I have a 9 yr old daughter. Recently we have changed the visitation court order. My daughter is not happy about the new plan. When it was time for her dad to take her for the weekend, she refused to go. I packed her bags etc before the dad came. My ex and daughter had a little private talk, but that didnt change our daughter's mind. Then, my ex was not happy and just left. Am I responsible for this? Will I be charged in contempt?My daughter told me she hates to go with her dad, because he often leave her and her brother(age 13) with someone else, while he has to go to work. And sometimes, he brings them to work too. (he owns a restaurant). They hate going to the restaurant, its boring. Another reason, his dad has a family now with a new baby. She feels being neglected. I've told the dad about this already, but he doesn't believe me. He thinks I made all this up. I did not encourage my daughter not to see her dad, but I encourage her to speak to her dad about anything. What can I do to make her go? I dont want to threaten her for things like that. I want to talk to her dad, but he ignores me. I can't talk to someone who doesn't respond to me.
