I have a 10 year old daughter that has lived with her father and stepmom for the past 3yrs.I was arrested for solicitation and have had supervised visitation ever since.I have recently retained an attorney to modify the custody order and today the stepmom tells me they have an 'offer"for me that they would like to talk to me about.They would agree to me having her every Sunday for 8 hours,but no overnight visits.She said "I have to take baby steps"and maybe in a year they would consider it!In return they would like my daughter to have her fathers last name.I feel like its to late,shes half of 18 and she knows her name.I think that "offer"is insane and told her absolutely not,see you in court.Am I wrong in thinking im getting overnight visits?Its been 3 years since I was charged with a misdemeanor or had my daughter more than 12 hrs a month in which I pay a social worker to supervise.I feel like they cant take anymore away....Answer Question

You really shouldn't be talking to the stepmother at all. Your conversations with the father should be minimal. If you have supervised visitation there should be no reason you need to talk to the stepfather. If you have an attorney, the stepmother should talk to the father and he should talk to his attorney and that attorney should talk to your attorney.
In the state where my son grew up it was very difficult to legally change a child's name if the child was under 18 or 21. Judges wouldn't do it and it couldn't be part of a "deal".
