What can I file to request un supervised visitation?

Tacoma, WA |

An order was placed for supervised visitation. I filed a motion for reconsideration but, was unaware that it needed to be filed within 10 days so my motion was denied. What can I file to have my motion for unsupervised visitation heard?

  1. You waived your right to challenge the prior order. You will need to wait until trial or file a motion to terminate the supervised visit which will be difficult without the assistance of an attorney, and even then will be a long shot under the doctrine of res judicata.

It is recommended that you consult with an attorney who can properly assess the situation, as well as all pertinent facts, prior to taking any action based on the foregoing statements


  2. The timing is important. Depending on how long you have been compliant with the supervision requirement, you may be able to modify the order. If this is just a temporary order, then you can ask to have it changed. I would suggest sitting down with an experienced family law attorney and work out a plan to achieve your goals.
