My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Nevada. We have NOT gone in front of the judge yet, and there are no orders.
My son is an infant, 7.5 months old. His dad has not seen him in 4.5 months since 4th of July weekend. And just started reluctantly Skyping with him last week. Dad lives 1,000 miles away. Dad is supposed to be visiting him this weekend for the first time since July. His dad (through our attorneys) agreed to supervised visitation for the first weekend. The visit is supposed to be Sat & Sun from 10a-6p. We proposed this based on a family therapist recommendation, who is someone my atty has hired for this case.
Question is: yesterday he finally sent over his suggestion for a supervisor. He gave 2 names, one person for each day. One of the people turned out to be a girl who just graduated from high school this year, so 18-19 yrs old?? And she lives at home with her mom. The girl doesn't have a record. However, the mother (who she lives with) has MULTIPLE child endangering, neglect and abuse criminal charges against her, all of which she either plead guilty or was found guilty.
My atty has always said we can't FORCE him to allow the supervisor to be me (at least, prior to this situation). And dad doesn't WANT me to be the supervisor.
Should I just be happy that he even agreed to supervised visitation, and allow him to pick someone else?
Or does this ever come to a point of clear negligence that dad can't take just a few minutes of his time to do a basic check on someone he wants to take his child around? I didn't even have to call anyone to find out this info. It was basic internet common sense skills.
