undersc0re is on a distinguished road

After a court appearance and then 2 fcc we are at grandmother seeing grand daughter minimum 1 time every month for 6 hours as per the interim court order, the court order has been followed other than the grandmother saying to grand daughter she had to go to court because of me just to see the grand daughter, she was not supposed to discuss court related stuff about the situation at all.
So someone was supposed to contact me for an appointment with 9 yr old for a views of the child assessment before court, court is in 5 days....I imagine that will not happen.
The time that grandma has with the grand daughter is average or a little above average for what I have seen in a bunch of case law, especially considering they were not exactly close to begin with they went a year twice without even seeing each other years ago.
So when we show up at court the fcc judge said we either agree to something or it will just have to go to trial, my problem is the old bat is stubborn and is just out to prove a point as another family member has let me in on that piece of info, and she has nothing better to do, she also hates me for other reasons!
So when I appear before the judge what is most likely to happen now? Would it help to tell the judge that the court order should stay as is since it is what similar case law allows in many other cases, and my daughter seems happy with the current situation. The daughter knows there is hatred between us and other family members which I feel makes it uncomfortable for her, plus I feel she is a bad influence on my daughter, just like she was a bad influence on my other daughter(step).
Mostly just wondering how to deal with the upcoming court appearance in the above circumstances, I am primary caregiver, mother will see child maybe every 3-5 months for an overnight or 2 usually. Grandmother originally was trying to get access as if she was a parent, for an overnighter every 2 weeks and an evening every week....would not be a problem if she was a normal human being...

Grandmother was a no show at court, waited to the end of day to try again, still no show.

Views of the child report is majorly delayed, very busy.

Judge says interim order stands as it is until the grandmother furthers the issue.

I miss more work, grandmother has fun stressing me out.

Is there an age when the granddaughter can say I do not want to stay at grandmothers house for 6 full hours, or at all and ignore the court order?

Do you have a lawyer?

You should have asked for costs to be ordered for the non-appearance.

I went through financial issues, in a situation where I do not qualify for legal assistance, I can not afford to retain and pay for a lawyer at this time in my life, maybe in another 6 months to year.

When there is no show when your standing up there can you immediately ask for costs at that time for missing work? Or is it usually a fine or set amount for those circumstances? Also this woman would just avoid paying and she is very good at playing the poor little old woman role.

If it is ordered, how do you make them pay? Especially if they are running away from other debt already.
