Yes. She should visit the court and ask to speak with an advocate. She should have evidence to submit to the court.

I think you have to process a case through the courts to issue supervised visitation.

Supervised visitation is utilized in every state and usually done when either ordered by the court with CPS involvement or ordered by divorce court due to actions deemed potentially dangerous to the childs mental/physical health, or ordered by the court in a case where two parents were never married.

You file a motion to modify visitation to supervised.

In the US... The court will only order supervised visitation if there is legitimate reason for it, such as a history of violence, drug addiction, mental illness, etc.

You have to go to court. if he never have had visitation before he has to apply for it in court.

In the state of Louisiana supervised visitation is when the parent does not have custody of a child can visit them with court supervision. It works with the parent having the opportunity to visit but having someone from the Department of Child Services with them.

You will need court permission to move the child or to exercise your visitation in an alternate location.

In the US, visitation is not optional. The only way a court would deny a parent visitation is if there is a very valid reason for it (ie alcohol, drugs, abuse, etc), and even then they would likely get supervised visitation.

You probably don't - in general, the law supports the idea that both parents should be in the child's life. If you feel that visitation might harm the child in some way, you can ask the courts to require supervised visitation, or visitation limited to public places.

Unless there is some sort of concern regarding visitation, such as it needs to be supervised, and the visitation is specific to the location, times, dates etc, then no, this is not a violation of a court order. Since the visitation is happening at daycare, and the child is not being removed from the daycare centre during non-court ordered visitation, there is no legal issue.

Go to the court of jurisdiction and file an emergency injunction temporarily stopping visitation rights based on the same. It is your right to know exactly where your child will be staying during visitation and if the location is unsuitable, it is also your right to request visitation modification based on the same including termination of visitation or supervised visitation.

I would let someone know that you are being abused when you visit your father. Perhaps his visitation with you can be supervised so you will not be hurt from him. Let your mother know this is occurring and she can have it supervised.

Being denied visitation or not, a father can petition for sole custody. The two situations are not related.

If there is a court order yes. Then you have to work on this the both of you.

They still have a right to visitation even if no order is in place, it can only be regulated down or supervised-not eliminated unless they volunteer to waive all rights.

If there is a relative or someone close to the family supervising it has to be someone both parents agree on. Otherwise the court will choose one.

If you're in the US... First, there is no 'them' obtaining visitation. It's 'him' obtaining the visitation. The wife doesn't have a right to visitation, but the father does. Second, *you* don't have to give him anything, but the court can order it. Third, the fact that she is facing criminal charges (and you didn't say what kind of charges) does not automatically exclude him from visitation, although the court may place restrictions on his visitation--ie that it be supervised or that the wife not be allowed around the child during his visitation.

The law does not require a father to be involved with his child. On the other hand, a father who wants visitation will almost certainly get it, altho it can be supervised or otherwise restricted if evidence suggests that the father should not be alone with the child.

There needs to be substantial evidence of child abuse or neglect, and even that, the children should bellowed supervised visitation with the father. The damage to them, and society in general, is substantial from fatherless children. see link
