My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Idaho
There is a standing court order from 2008 that stipulates joint custody and visitation which has been exercised to the present date. In the order, the non custodial parent (the father) has agreed to allow time for the child to attend horse events that fall on his visitation time. Horse events often fall on weekends during summer visitation. The child is now 13 and believes that she has the right to choose (horse event or not), and does not want to come for summer visitation. I am fairly sure that the next visitation pick up is going to entail calling police to enforce the current court order and that this is going to end up in front of a judge again.
My question is... if and when this goes back to court, is it possible or likely, that the judge will order allow the child the right to choose not to exercise her visitation with her father? The father wants to have visitation and has used it. What are the guidelines in this?
