My daughter doesn't even know where and when she's going.

Answer: Arizona Revised Statute §25-408 discusses rights of parents in terms of relocating children and enforcing parenting orders. If one parent has violated the parenting order, the other parent can file a petition asking the court to enforce the parenting time order.
