My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Arkansas
I have full custody of my 11 year old daughter. Her biological father didn't even enter the picture until she was 7 and then came into her life full force and wanting all of "his rights". He has standard visitation and makes her go every other weekend and 8 weeks in the summer. He lives 3 hours away so the trip up there and back gets really tiring for her. Also she is gone all summer (I go get her every other weekend though) She still has a life here and there are things that she wants to do in the summer here.
Is there an age that she can decide how much time she spends with him? If there is a weekend that she wants to do something else can she refuse to go? Or say if she wanted to do something here this summer, can he force her to stay with him all summer?
Oh and BTW, we have not been to court about this. It was just settled out of court that he would have regular visitation.
