Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Has she spoken with the father about her concerns? When she withheld visitation during the summer, did the father do anything?
If she fails to comply with the court order and withholds visitation, then he can take her back to court and seek to hold her in contempt and ask that the Judge compel her to act. If that happens, she would need to present evidence and show the Judge why she did not allow him to go and that she was acting in the best interest of the child. She would need to show that based up what he was arrested for and his current condition, that he could not care for the child and the childs health and safety would be at risk. Now, if she resides in Florida with the child, that is where this would need to be filed. It would not make any sense for the parties to have to go back to Las Vegas, when neither reside there and the State is which the child resides, could hear the matter.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
