  • Well unless BM goes back to court to request unsupervised visits she is stuck with Supervised visits. That's just the fact of it.

  • If the court order says supervised visits, then your husband doesn't have to give her unsupervised if he doesn't want to. If she wants it that badly, then she should go back to court to ask for it to be changed, and let the judge decide if she's now stable enough and reliable enough to be trusted with the child alone.

  • who cares if she's mad. Tell her to take you to court if she has a problem with it and have all supporting documents showing what she has done and she can't be trusted.

  • Nothing else to be done. If the order is for supervised, then that's what it's for. If she wants it changed then she needs to go through the courts.

  • She's mad, so what? She's the one who left the child alone in the first place. Tell her to take it up with the judge.
