Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
Check your visitation orders, normally they only mention the other parent not the designee.You would tell him that you will appear but not relinquish child to another person.The orders do not normally allow for this, so check them.Then I suggest if you have told him this and the third party shows you refuse to release the child to her.Try to avoid this if you can and document that, talk to child ahead of time and tell them you have told the father and see if he resolves this.Otherwise you go and make child available, don't have to turn them over here, assuming your orders do not provide for father or his designee--but rather father only here.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
