My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Virginia
We had custody and visitation done last year knowing I had a pending 3rd DUI charge. I took whatever I could get to make sure I saw my daughter. I am about to finish my incarceration and would like to look into overnight visitation and the ability to travel with her(currently not allowed to make decisions on transportation. I undeerstand there definitely needs to be some time for her(my daughter) to transition but would still like to see what can be done about these issues. I will have my own apartment and have been active in recovery regarding my alcohol issues. I would like to be able to make decisions on allowing her to travel with another driver for things like the mall, parks, shopping for her, or other situations during my visitation hours. My current visitation is on Tues eve from 5:30-8:30/9pm and Sunday from 10-2pm. All she keeps saying when I tell her I'd like to look into this is that it's not gonna happen and no judge in the world will give me more visitation with my past. I just don't know what I should do or if anything is even possible in the future. Thank you for any advice or assistance in this matter.
