I have physical custody of my daughter and her mother has supervised visitation every other weekend at a court ordered visitation center. The reasoning for the supervised visitation stems from her mother’s domestic violence issues with her boyfriend and anger management issues which have in the past compromised the safety of my daughter (and exposed her to inappropriate situations) while in her care. I wouldn’t mind my daughter spending time with her mother if I could trust that she makes good decisions, but she does not. My daughter asked if she could spend Thanksgiving at her maternal grandmother’s home. I know her mother will be there. If I allow my daughter to go, am I in violation of the supervised visitation order? I don’t want to stop my daughter from seeing her family.
