Legal Question in Family Law in Virginia

I'm trying to get the best legal advice and understand "Liberal Visitation". My daughters father and I have Shared, Joint Legal Custody and I (mother) have "Liberal Visitation. I've tried for the past 3 months to make arrangements with my child's father to come pick her. He clearly make up excuses as to why I can't pick up our child, or he will go back on his word after discussing a schedule. Does he have the authority to tell me a schedule being that he has physical custody? He tells me I can only keep or child for one week and being her back to VIRGINIA.

violator should not be found in contempt and and appropriately sanctioned.
