Good evening. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. A Judge is always going to act in the best interest of the child. If he engages in and does the things you shared above, it could have an impact on the visitation. it could result in the visitation being supervised at this point, until he tests clean and there are not drugs in his system. Moreover, if you are breastfeeding, the baby does need to be with you, unless you are comfortable pumping and giving him a bottle to use with the breast milk. I know it is not ideal and I think the time you allow him is reasonable, so you need to work with him and find out what he is looking for. While establishing paternity gives him a basis to proceed and get visitation, this may be something that can be worked out.
breast feeding is important factor
I do think that they are going to tier anything in order to allow a time that the parties learn about each other
you would need to detail your belief as to why you believe he is drug user and ask for drug testing
with pot usage it is a long time for it to leave the system
a few hours a week at a time for the child to get used to him would not be surprising
if he is clean let the visits continue on your terms
court would not like to see you stop contact with him and the baby now that something has been filed
just keep it on your terms
you will not but since you know that he has in the past then you can make the request
you can always ask for a continuance it would be up to the court to decide
the continuance is up to the court
I would at least put in for it and see what they do
if you are already letting him see her then I would continue them
a judge will not look highly at you stopping visits before the court date
Can I still help?
