My sister has had legal guardenship for 8 yrs i still have supervised visits even took her to court to get unsupervised i had a great lawyer judge still wouldnt give unsupervised my lawyer very upset said judge was paid off
Depending upon how recently you were in Court, you may still be able to appeal the trial Court's denial of your petition for unsupervised visitation. However, you need to act quickly. If you do not act quickly, your right to appeal me be lost. I would speak to your attorney about your appellate rights on Monday if at all possible. Best of Luck!
You should not be posting these questions on Avvo while you are reresented by a lawyer. Other lawyers are not allowed to provide you with counsel while you are represented by counsel, except in very limited circumstances. But, having said that, your lawyer may choose to file a Motion to Amend the judgment (Rule 52.02) or a Motion for a Newc Trial (Rule 59) in order to buy some additional time for you to gather the money for an appeal. You only have a very small window of time in which to file the post-trial motions.
