My daughter's ex husband moved to his home state of West Virginia. NC was their state of residence for the marriage and where their daughter was born. My daughter has allowed him visitation anytime he wants to come visit. We even took her to WV, covering all the travel expenses for her to visit him for the weekend.
Now he wants my daughter to meet him in Virginia and let him have the child (a three year old) for a week.
They have not been to court for any formal custody agreement, because my daughter does not want to prevent him from seeing his daughter.
My question is, is it likely that she would be required to let him take her out of state for visitation.
She offered to bring her to WV to visit him again for a few days, but he's insistant that he have her for a week and be allowed to travel with her to visit his family in NY.
She has never been away from her mother for that long and does not want to go.
A bit more info to shed light on why she does not want to let her go for a week.
The father has a history of drug and alcohol use. He has 2 outstanding DUI's in NC that he failed to appear in court to face. That is one of the reasons he doesn't want to visit in NC. He has no NC drivers liscense.
She does not want her daughter traveling with this man given his history.
Does he have any rights to force her to let him take her out of state, when he is the one who chose to relocate from the state she has always called home or should he have to visit her here?
