Title: Supervised Visitation
Post by: reellis527 on Nov 27, 2006, 08:48:11 AM
My daughters fathers has now missed the last three supervised visitations.  I was told to send him a certified letter telling him since he has missed the visits that I am now terminating them.  I need help in writing the letter though.

1) Can you give me some verbage or ideas to put in the letter?

2) Is there anything that the letter must state?

Thanks

Refresh my memory as to why you believe you have personal authority to terminate the other parent's visitation rights?

No, but if you don't actually have lawful authority for this decision, then the letter won't be worth the paper it's printed on.

I don't know if I have the legal rights or not, my lawyer said that is how we are going to handle it and if he wants visitation he'll have to take me back to court.  The supervised center said they are reporting the absences to the courts and it's up to me to continue to come.  I am not held by the courts to take her there, my lawyer spoke without instead of letting the judge rule/decide on the matter and they agreed to supervised...

If your lawyer is telling you to handle it this way, then I must defer to your lawyer to draft the letter for you. If you terminate your lawyer, then I can help you.
