Good evening, it is a pleasure responding to your question. A quick clarification question to you, if you don't mind:

Your daugher is an adult. Is your daughter under a guardianship with you due to incapacity resulting from her 'mild mental handicap'?

Thanks for providing this additional information.

Thank you for the clarification!

It would appear under the circumstances that your daughter, whose autonomy as an adult has not been abdicated, has the right to do as she pleases here. If her father is agreeable to seeing her, than it is their mutual decision. As such, it is not your legal responsible to make it happen either, although morally may be a different story :)
