This is something that generally requires a family lawyer because modification is not always granted, especially in your state where it says it must be a permanent change. That may be hard to prove sometimes and that is not the requirement in other states. A good family lawyer will be able to assess the situation and do everything possible to get this modified. From what you're telling me, this is serious and visitation should be stopped immediately. She may be able to get an emergency order to get into court quickly and stop this before the kids get hurt.
If you need names of attorneys in her area, just let me know and I'm happy to help you with that. I do that for my customers here.
Thank you for that information!
The kids are old enough -- that's good. They may be able to tell the judge what is going on, and if they don't want to talk to the judge, they may be able to write what is going on and have your daughter file on their behalf. I would wait to call CPS until you have a lawyer on board unless he's supposed to see the kids soon. If so, you may need to have her call CPS because you don't want him to have the kids again. If the kids are saying they are being abused, I'm sure they are. That's horrible and it has to be taken care of immediately.
Oh geez, I'm so sorry.
She really needs a family lawyer but she should be able to get this changed.
Just let me know if you want me to find family lawyers for you. The kids are hurting, I'm sure, as is she, so they probably don't even want to see him.
