My daughter is ten years old and her father has never been supportive of her doing any activities or going to any parties on the weekends she is with him. He even made her miss her annual dance show that she worked hard for because it fell on 'his' weekend and would promise to take her to her friends parties, but then let her down. We went to court when she was seven years old and the order specifies that he must facilitate parties and activities.

Since then, he's taken her to one party. She is very sociable and sporty and I have literally taken her to hundreds of things since we were last in court. She is very talented at a particular sport and has been asked to train with the club squad, who compete nationally and internationally. She is absolutely desperate to do this. However, it would mean training for 5 hours on a Saturday and her dad refuses because it will disrupt his weekend.

As the respondent in the original application, can I seek to have the order enforced to allow her to follow her dream? Or would I need to act in a way that forces his hand to take me back to court - I.e. overrule him and say she's only available for contact after training if he won't take her?
