My daughter is 5 years old. Her biological father has been in and out of jail her entire life (He was incarcerated the day she was born.. he didn't meet her until she was almost 2 months old) I left him when she was 4 months old, and met the man she calls Daddy today. We have since had two boys, and he has been such a great father. She has court ordered visits with her biological father every Sunday from 12pm - 8pm supervised by her paternal grandparents, at their home, where he lives. Currently, he is serving 2 years in state prison on a mayhem charge (He bit off a man's ear) He has an abusive record, and he's a drunk. He's been to jail, rehab, mental hospitals.. none of which helped him apparently. It has been 7 years since I met him.. he is now 27 years old.. and still hasn't grown up. Anyway.. while serving his sentence in STATE PRISON.. he filed a motion with the court, trying to get a judge to order him visitation while in PRISON! Who else thinks that this is obsurd! She is 5 years old.. and only saw him once a week for 8 hours, if and when he wasn't in jail. I told him I would never willingly allow this.. and now he's bringing me to court. I live in Massachusetts.. what do you think will happen? Do you think a judge will allow this? I don't have the money for a lawyer.. I'm freaking out because I don't want to put my daughter through this.. Do you think that there is a judge out there that would actually allow this to happen? I could see if he had custody of her, or was actively in her life on a daily basis... but 8 hour visits once a week? And before that, it was 4 hour visits every other week. What do you think, and what should I do!?
