I am sorry to hear about this situation. You ask: "Is there anything we can do to get this over with?"
I am afraid not until the trial date. It sounds like the Court is already having this scheduled, but the "wheels of justice turn slowly" and this is true - the family will have to wait until the court date. Now, if the mother is the conservator (custodian), she can relocate out of the home with him and live somewhere where it is better. Also, she can file an ex parte emergency petition for suspend visitation if she feels she can prove that continuing the visitation while the trial is pending is dangerous to the child given his continuous drug use. But she has to do this - no one else will file for her.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
