Judges have a wide ranges of options available to them at show cause hearings. However, whether a judge will modify custody or visitation arrangements at this type of hearing depends on local practice. Having said that, if the problem is that the father isn't there for visitation, a show cause probably isn't the right solution. You can't force a parent to exercise his or her visitation. If the problem is that the grandmother (supervisor) isn't present, but the father is, it makes sense to request a new supervisor. If you can, consult with an attorney in the county where your show cause motion will be heard. If not, at least prepare yourself for the hearing by thinking through a set of alternatives. You'll probably need to follow up this action with a request to modify custody or visitation if you want to make any changes.
