Need advice on visitation

My dsd lives 3000 miles away. When dh and his ex split up she moved to CA. This was about 4 years ago. The first time dh flew out and got her and flew her back. BM came and got her and took her back home. Great they can split the cost right?? Wrong. The 2nd year bm REFUSED to let dd come out here. We were getting married and right before she blew up (issues??) and refused to help pay so dsd didn't come and she blamed poor dh. This LAST year we paid for everything since bm REFUSED and said if dh wants to know his dd he will "find a way to pay" Now keep in mind that dh pays $100 a week and even when his hours were cut (steel worker) he never tried to get it lowered.

Any opinions?? Am I the only one that thinks this isn't right?? Would love to hear about someone else idea. I told dh we should go back to court but he is afraid this will only infuriate bm more and she won't allow dsd to come at all even WITH the court order. We don't really have the $$$ to pay for the whole trip again OR for some hot-shot attorney. Help!
