I am not after free stuff and I cannot type very fast. What is the additional information that you need from me? When do I rate you?

Is there a specific question you might have that I could answer for you? Steve
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My grandaughter is almost 3-years old. Is my daughter required to allow visitation rights to the dead-beat dad? If so, can she dictate that the visitations occur at the dad's mother's (grandmother) house? He has not provided an address where he is taking her and it is not known who is at where she is being taken. My grandaughter has been returning from visits with the dad with insect bites all over her

Is there a court order in effect which specifies visitation? And if so what does it say? I would need to know that before I could provide a correct answer. Thanks, Steve

I do not think so. The presiding judge yesterday is different from the Judge that has been seeing my daughter and he asked yesterday why she is letting the dad have visiting rights. My daughter's lawyer responded that he "did not think the other judge whould have look favorably if my daugter had refused visiting rights"

Thank you! If there is no current order in place then she is not doing anything that she could get in legal trouble for. Contempt will not lie as there is no order that she is violating. My concern is that sooner or later he will file to see this child. The law is that visitation is not dependent on paying support, believe it or not. So even if he is a deadbeat Dad, legally he still has visitation rights, but until and if he moves to enforce them, she can continue to act as she currently is. She can also demand that visitation take place at the Grandmothers home, but until there is a court order in place as to this issue, he has no obligation to listen. Sincerely, Steve

Thank you reference visitation rights. Now, concerning full legal custody:

Her lawyer told her he did not want to advise her how to answer on the stand to a question from the judge: "why should I grant you full legal custody" be cause some try to memorize and screw up their answer.
