My daughter passed away almost 3 years ago, she had 3 children I was very close to and saw or spoke to almost everyday. I have contact with 2 of them, however the father of my 12 year old granddaughter moved her 3 hours away and won’t let me see her. I went to court and got visitation 1 time a month for the weekend. The only problem is I have to drive the whole way to get her and take her home and it is wearing me out. After my daughter passed the father would meet me half way but not now. I just don’t know how much longer I can keep doing this by myself. I am not young and also work a full time job. It is only my husband and I that are allowed to pick her up. The father promised me after my daughter passed that he would make sure my granddaughter was in my life but now doesn’t want her with me at all. Hurt mamaw needs help
Where does it say she’s driving for 12 hours Surely she’s driving 3 hours picking granddaughter up then at end of weekend driving her back 3 hours ( 6 hours ) I got visitation 1 time a month for the weekend. The only problem is I have to drive the whole way to get her and take her home and it is wearing me out isn’t this 6 hours ? .
Hithere maybe the father should consider that his child has lost her mother and, from the OP’sdescription, her two siblings as well. Compounding it with estrangement with her grandparentsas well is unlikely to help.
Exactly Chewbacca, I posted something very similar earlier.
It's unfortunate that the OP had no alternative but to go to court which could have been avoided if her GD's father had not been so unreasonable, and prevented her from staying in contact with the child of the D she's lost.

Bluebells. She drives 3 hours there, picks up grandchild drives 3 hours back to her home. Then drives 3 hours back to return child to her father, then has to drive 3 hours back to her house. That's 3 x4 =12
