I have three children with my ex. I have full custody and he has visits. One visit, he was drunk for the entire time. Emotionally abused kids, and failed to provide care for them. I filed order to alter visits. I want supervised visits until he can prove reliable. He is technically homeless, but is rooming with his mother. He wants all weekend unsupervised visits. Attempted mediation. No agreement. I let him have a few supervised visits, in which he broke the rules to those visits by taking children out of supervisors sight. How do I convince the court that he should only have supervised non-overnight visits? What do I do after I requested a hearing?Mediator says that he is fit parent but wouldn't put her children in that home. No toilet or running water in home. In actuality, he is a life long drunk. He was drunk for thanksgiving, christmas and a birthday visit, not to mention two behavior health stays and has no job, and was recently evicted.
