Hi
The Law says that a child is entitled to Contact with both parents and the Courts will enforce this if necessary.
Your ex cannot dictate whether or not you take the child to see your parents (unless they are a known risk to children)
Equally neither of you can take the child out of the Country without the agreement of the other or an order from the court, and you have the right to be consulted on all major issues in the child's lives - such as where the child goes to school.
Your starting point is to try and discuss matters with your ex using Family mediation
www.familymediationhelpline.co.uk
If that fails then you may need to to apply to the Court for a Child Arrangement Order setting out the time your daughter should spend with you
Please ask if you need further details
