My question involves a child custody case from the State of: AL
I am the Grandparent that has full legal custody of grandchild since birth.
The mother gave her rights up as she was not able to take care of the child, the father pulled a last ditch effort in court to get full custody but was granted Strict supervised visits with his grandmother being the supervisor of those visits.
At the time the father lived with her and the order stated all visits are to be at her home only. The father was kicked out of her house last year for violence to his brother, since then the father has Married and gotten a job but we still have problems with them keeping the Visits he is on the States Visitation 1st and 3rd weekend, and Holidays rotating in odd and even years. We have several problems with times we have requested a change or switch that they refuse, being told that they do not care about us our plans or anything and we have to
go by the court order. The Grandmother however goes off for months at a time and does not tell us when they are coming back until the last minute I mean out of state. So if I make plans I have to cancel at the last minute Including Birthday party for the child as it took 21 days for them to answer my msg as to when she was returning. We have on several occasions helped them out by changing to accomadate them.
The father is to pay child support but he does not pay hardly at all, stating his legal fines and probation are eating up his income.
Trying to keep the peace but they make it hard. Any suggestions on how to enforce things, he has not met any guidelines set forth by the judge to get custody yet he threathens all the time to take us court if we remind him of his obligations.
