Declining an invitation due to a valid reason

Q: My parents are separated. My dad keeps insisting that I go to this party at his house with his family but I dont want to. He still insists. My mum doesn't want me going to his house anyway. Am I allowed to decline?

A: If it is for some valid reasons that you decline the invite then it is right.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
