My sister passed away February 4th 2015 and I have guardianship of her daughter her step father wants to take her to the movies and to dinner and to the park and to church and to have her spending nights at his house and I honestly don't trust him...
How sad for this child. First she loses her mom and now she is losing her male father figure.
Death often brings out the worst in people. I would urge you to consider counseling for you, the child and the step-dad.
Can he go to court? Absolutely. I could ask for visitation with the child - it would be denied because I have no relationship with the child but I can still file a lawsuit and force you to spend money to defend against the lawsuit.
Why would you want to keep her away from a person that she loves? I just don't understand. I don't know how a Harris County judge would view your attitude.See question

Basically as a step-parent you have no rights. The 2 parents are expected to co-parent this child for this child's entire life. You need to talk to an attorney.
Playing games with a child could possibly hurt the child. Parents are expected to do things in the best interests of the child.See question

My ex fiancé and I separated. He has an 11 year old from previous relationship and has visitation rights for her. I'm wondering how the visitation right will be for our almost 3mth old that is exclusively breastfed and our 2 year old daughters . ...
In Harris County the visitation for children under 3 might be different depending on the judge that you are assigned to. I know one associate judge that was a working mother that breast-fed and she tells women just to pump. Another associate judge gave a man 50% custody of a one month old -- he had 4 other kids that he had raised and the mother of the baby admitted he was a hands-on dad.
There are many visitation schedules available. Usually for a small child they are short (2-4 hours) several times a week so that the baby can get to know both parents. But that does not work if they don't live close to each other.

The judge has to grant the request. You can appear and argue after paying her and a couple of weeks before trial that it's unfair. I have no idea what the judge will do.See question
My sister stated (she is 9years old) that her father TAKES A BATH with her. I reported it to CPS but they did nothing, even though there is third party documentation of the outcry. Is there a type of attorney we can get to force them to ...
You can certainly sue CPS but you are wasting your time and money because they have immunity from prosecution.
If you want to modify the current arrangements then you need to file to modify.
If CPS closed the case then they did not find an immediate danger. Since the child "refused" to speak CPS cannot "force" her to speak.See question
