How far is too far???

My Husband has a now 14 yr old child that he doesn't get to see because her mom says its too far. We live like an hour and a half away. I call BS. He has followed her all over the country to try to spend time with her but its always something. its either too far or inconvenient. I don't get it. He wants to have a relationship with his daughter but her mother won't allow that to happen. I think it's ridiculous. She gets money every month from his disability check so I think we can push for visits but then again i'm not sure.

If he wants a relationship than push. Legally she can't keep that child away. He has rights.

I'd call bullshit. My niece live 2 or 3 states away from bil and as much as her mother would love to keep her dd away she can't.

Do you guys split the driving to go get her? I don't think she should keep him from him, but on the same hand I wouldn't want to always be the one having to drive an hour and a half to get her or drop her off.

Is there a custody agreement? If not he should get one.

Time to get a court order of he wants to see his other child bad enough honestly. That way if she tries it again, she'll be breaking the court order.
