New Mexico Mother and Father have Daughter together in the US.
After Mother and Father break up, Father moves to Mexico.
Now, Father wants to exercise his timesharing and visitation with Daughter … in Mexico.
Mother does not speak Spanish and has never been to Mexico before.
Presumably, Daughter has never been to Mexico before.
Mexico is under travel advisories by the US Department of State due to violence and crime there, and Mother is concerned for their safety and freedom.
Mother has no problem with Father exercising visitation and timesharing – here in the US.
But a New Mexico family court judge orders Mother, a US citizen, to bring now eight year old Daughter, a US citizen, to Mexico to visit with Father for a week.
The presiding judge was unavailable to the media for timely comment.
Mother asserts that she does not have the resources to appeal the ruling.
