Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.

Can you please give me a little background on the matter? Who are the parties? What happened so far to get to this point?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Thank you. Have you actually file a motion for said visitation at this time, or are you asking what chance you have if you do file and/or how to file said motion?

Hello and sorry for the wait - I was offline when you responded.

The chances are good that your motion would be approved, although I cannot speak for the Judge. Since the accusation has not been proven, the Court is likely to allow supervised, no overnight visitation - however the final decision is up to the Judge.
