I am truly sorry to hear of the Judge's decision. It shows that the Judge does not have a clue as to the needs of babies. The Judge's Order might very well cause severe trauma to your daughter. I have done very many custody cases, and I have never encountered a Judge who gave so much visitation
all at once where a 15 month old baby was involved. And, there was no reason for the Judge not to allow either your brother or your father to supervise the visitation because it would have also provided your daughter with a familiar face which would have minimized the trauma of being left with someone she was unfamiliar with.
Two hours a day, three days a week is drastic for a 15 month old baby who has not seen this man for months.
If I were you, I would immediately file an appeal of the Judge's decision and while you are awaiting for the appeal to be heard, you can ask that the present Order be left in abeyance (not put into effect). Tomorrow morning, go to the Family Court Clerk's Office and ask for the forms he/she has for filing an Appeal of the Order entered by Judge _______ regarding your baby. While waiting for the Appeal date, ask that the present Order be left in abeyance because if it were put into effect, "permanent and irreparable harm" would be caused to your 15 month old baby. Whereas, a delay would not make a big difference to the father.
Please be kind enough to leave a positive rating so that the website will give me credit for assisting you.
