Does anyone have experience of supervised visitation being changed to unsupervised?
BM lost custody of SD quite a few years ago and was originally on a visitation plan that consisted of supervised visitation 3 x a week with the thought that this would step up to unsupervised, overnight and eventually weekend visitation.
Due to her actions, she eventually had this taken away from her also and now sees SD 2 x year for a period of 1 week (50 hours) supervised visitation with no overnights. The Judge ruled that this was the final ruling.
Now her lawyer says she is filing to request unsupervised visitation and preferably overnight visitation. It has been more than half of SD's life since she spend overnight with her mom.
BM says she has completed a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program but she still appears to be inebriated when speaking/skyping with SD. She also has issues of self control and periods of highly inappropriate behavior and crazy outbursts around SD (it's almost as if she has no filter at all, if she thinks or feels it, it comes out, appropriate or not).
Does anyone have experience of moving from supervised to unsupervised AFTER a judge has previously taken away this option. I understand that the whole point of supervised is to move to unsupervised but we have been down that road and it ended very badly and with a situation that was very dangerous for SD. My DH is pro se (representing himself) and I would like as much information as we can possibly find on how likely it is that she will be granted unsupervised access.
