More details to this question:
Had a long hard custody battle settled in 2010. Mom has a history of brain washing. had a few run ins with cps which were dropped due to no evidence. Mom is convincing child to no longer want to visit. Will this cause me to lose my joint physical and legal custody?

While you are unlikely to lose technical legal or physical custody, when kids hit that age, they can effectively kill any real parenting time you have if they really want to. From this point on, the child will probably be the driving force as a practical matter. Just do what you can to retain a good relationship. Good Luck.
