Hello again, Theresa, and thank you for clarifying that situation for me.
This would be a very confusing situation for your daughter and likely does send her the wrong message. The problem is that parental rights
are constitutionally protected, so it is difficult to limit or terminate a parent's right to visitation and you should not normally violate a court order granting the father visitation.
However, you could file a motion to modify the order of visitation, seeking more limited visitation by the father, or even supervised visitation
as being in the best interests of your child. To make a persuasive case, you should typically have evidence that the current visitation is not in your daughter's best interests, such as statements by school officials that her grades are suffering because of the instability, or a statement by her therapist indicating she is suffering in some way because of the father's situation. In addition, a journal of all incidents which evidence neglect by him should be documented and presented to the court as well typically, such as him leaving her in public places where she is not supervised.
This would typically represent the appropriate method for modifying the court's order of custody so he cannot seek to have you held in contempt of court for refusing visitation which would violate the current order which is in place.
