HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I suggest that you consider beginning with supervised visitation to the Mother only. That can take place at a public place such as a local park. You can be there or if you have a friend or family member who is willing to supervise the visits let them. Begin with this and see how it progresses for a month or two. Once you see how the Mother and daughter interact and things are going well, then you can consider extending the visits -still supervised - to include the other children with the Mother. See how that progresses If things go well, then you can agree to allowing the Mother to have non supervised visits with her daughter for say one evening a week and also on Saturdays or Sunday. Then you can decide if it should go to the next level such as from Friday evening to Sunday evening.In other words, you can set the pace and remain in control. Whatever you decide, I suggest you put it in writing and then both agree on it with signatures in front of a Notary. That will keep it out of court. Please note that I can only provide information for what you ask. In that regard, if you have other questions or need clarification, please let me know here. Otherwise, I would appreciate a Positive Rating as that is how I get credit for my time.​Thank you
