Good evening. I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. You do have rights and those are what were ordered by the court. In this case, it would be when it was ordered for you to have the child and it is NOT up to her to decide if she wants to go. You can decide if you want to take her and if she was taken to her moms, her mother should have brought her to you and told her she can not stay, since it is your time. While her mom can petition the court, until the Judge changes the court order, she needs to comply or else she can be held in contempt of court and the Judge is not going to allow her to just decide if and when she wants to see you.
You are welcome. Please let me know if there is anything else, as I would be happy to respond. If not, please remember to rate my help at this time, prior to leaving, so I can receive the proper credit, for our time together. Thank you.
