the ex husband has been charged and found guilty of giving

Resolved Question:

the ex husband has been charged and found guilty of giving the minor children,(15 y.o., 12 y.o., and 5 y.o.) marajuana and alchohol. to which he was fined $365.50 per child. In turn he filed a contempt charge against the mother for not allowing him to see the children. The judge ruled that the mother had to allow the children to go to his home for the weekend, due to the terms of divorce. Is there no legal grounds for which to rebuke his visitation rights?

Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.

ScottyMacEsq :

Absolutely. The conviction is a material change in circumstances, that would make visitation with the father dangerous to the health and well being of the children.

ScottyMacEsq :

In order to ask the court for a modification of visitation rights, there needs to be a significant and material change in the circumstances. We have that here.

ScottyMacEsq :

You can ask the court to grant you a change because of the health and wellbeing of the children would be put in jeopardy, evidenced by this conviction.

ScottyMacEsq :

That being said, you need to contact an attorney in your area that deals with custody and visitation cases. Go to or to find an attorney in your area. You should be able to find one that will give you a free initial consultation and better advise you of your rights, any problems with your case, likelihood of success, how courts are treating cases such as yours in your area, and what you should do next.
