The mother said that she wants a therapist to supervise for 3 months because she thinks that I would not be a good superviser. My son was using drugs sleeping bills and was arrest for use. He has been clean and has token 2 drug test and failed them about 5 months ago but for the last 3 months has been clean. He just wants to see son but he only has about 20.00 left after all bills paid and he wants to see son.
They are not married. the court order says a 3 month visitation with 3 party a(therapist) and then if the mother agrees after interview our deacon of church 3 months with them. She has to much control and our lawyer said that because of my son arrest for the pills and a DWI that he has to go by this. Our lawyer said it is joint custody but the mom says it is that she has full custody. We go back in 6 months in front of the judge. We didn't even get to speak at all because judge gave us 10 minutes and her lawyer went to the judge 2 weeks before court date that we didn't know and told the judge about the DWI. When we got time to talk the judge said he made up his mind from previsous conversation by her lawyer and that is not right. We are stuck and don't know what to do. Our lawyer is just going by what her lawyer says.
Thanks Steve but still looking for a place that my son can see his child. He don't have the money for a new lawyer already took loan for this one. He is going crazy for not see son what can we do. Do you have to have a lawyer to go back to court.
