The mother has custody, the father is allowed professionally supervised visitation 1 day a week, which he does not make use of. The original order was for the visits to be supervised by the paternal g-parents. This was due to the father's behavior (alleged substance abuse, emotional and physical abuse). This past fall a judge ordered the visits to be professionally supervised due to the GAL's initial report, concerns that the paternal g-parents were not providing adequate supervision, and the father's arrest record since the initial court case.
The GAL seems to be of the opinion that children under 5 or 6 cannot fully benefit from counseling.
