Father has supervised visitation due to alcohol disorder diagnosis on SAE report through the courts. Supervising agency has allowed him to violate the terms of our contract by bringing gifts, toys, books, etc to each visit. The agency lied to me when I asked if they were doing this. I took a picture of him leaving the office with a huge laundry mesh bag filled with these items. The visitation monitor has also had inappropriate intimate physical contact with my child. As I was leaving after my third visit, she put her hand in my daughter’s hair and pulled her close and kissed her on her face. I have shown up early for pick up and saw the monitor on the floor playing with my child instead of behind her desk taking notes. When I confronted her about it, she said she put into the notes, something had fallen off the desk, and I couldn’t prove otherwise. The monitor also tried to intimidate me change the court ordered visitation schedule, because if I didn’t the father’s attorney would “come after me”. She is not allowed to give legal advice and when I asked her if she meant by “coming after” me, his attorney would need to take me back to court, she advised me to do what he wanted.
I believe you will have to go to court to make any modifications. It’ll be upto the judge to decide
