Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
DearCustomer- Well this is obviously a problem but it may be an isolated incident. If you truly believe that the mother is mentally disturbed and is presenting a danger to your children you should file a motion to suspend visitation and ask the court for a psychiatric evaluation.
If this is just a one time incident it is probably not worth the effort and might cause even more problems. Your children are the most important concern so if you fear for their well being you should file a motion.
Well it certainly is your call. You have a right to file a motion if you are concerned. As I said the welfare of your children is the most important consideration.
