I attended my kids baseball game at a public park, and my ex yelled at me stating I had no right to be there and called the police. I left as to not cause a scene in public or in front of my kids. If there is a "supervised visitation" order in place for me to see my kids, does this also mean that I cannot attend any public events the kids are a part of? If she is correct though, then if I go out to dinner at a restaurant and my ex is there with the kids, am I to leave? This sounds more like a restraining order than "supervised visitation." I contacted the person supervising my visits and she confirmed that she was the one that told my ex I could not be at the baseball game. The supervisor stated in her experience other non-custodial parents had been "reprimanded by the court" for attending their kid's sporting events. What kind of "reprimanding" would the courts enact???
Thank you for your help!
It is difficult to get away with attending events if you only have supervised visitation, however, it depends on exactly what your orders states. You can request to modify the order to allow for you to attend such events, however, without a court order, it is unlikely you will be able to attend these events. I would contact an attorney for further assistance.
Usually this is addressed in your order. If it is not, then it is really a question of whether your presence will cause anxiety for your child.
