I have a daughter 15.5 years old. She does not wish to see her father any longer. Can she be made to do so by the courts?

Thank you for your question.

The answer to your question is very straightforward. There is not a judge in the land that will force a 15.5 year old to see a parent against her will. Stop worrying about this. Your daughter is an adult at 16 under Scots law. From the age of 12 her views have to be considered and at 15 her views are all that matter.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
