My ex husband was arreasted & convicted of DV aug 2016. I had 98% custody for the last 2 years & had a hearing I wasn't able to show up for becuz at the time I was a flt attendant & they sent me out on a trip. The judge awarded my ex shared custody. 3 weeks n2 having shared custody he was arrested at his home w/ our daughter in his custody. He's court ordered not to drink while having her in custody, the officers had paperwork stating that, he proceeded to fight with 1 of the officers & had been arrested. The DA put a protective order on our daughter against him. She's 11. We went back to court due to this 2nd arrest, the judge awarded me 100% cust. The only visitation he's allowed to have w/ her is prof supervised visits. The custody hearing was Dec 18th, '17, he has yet to schedule an appntmnt to see our daughter. We have another custody hearing at the end of March. How will this look with the judge? He has a fiance pays for everything. He quite working. In Dec they paid for a fake wedding because we aren't divorced yet. But he says he doesn't have the money to pay for the prof supervised visit. Can i ask if the currcustody can remain the same? Does this look good 4 my case?
If your ex husband has a justifiable reason for being unable to comply with the current court order(s), then the hearing may go in his favor. However, how much is the professional supervisor? is there another professional supervisor or are there other professional supervisors who is or who are more inexpensive?
However, if your ex husband does not have a justifiable reason for being unable to comply with the current court order(s), then the hearing may go in your favor...
At the end of the day, when it is all said and done, you have to focus your argument(s) on what is in the best interest(s) of your minor child or minor children involved...
