Dear Socrateaser / Help with Supervision
« on: Jun 06, 2006, 03:34:22 PM »
State: Texas
County: Brazos

I have Temp sole custody with a TRO until Thursday.  We are having a hearing for temp. orders.  We have court in Brazos county and we live in an other county with the child.  

The attorney has asked us to find a supervision center that will take bio-mom and gp's.  The problem is, is that I can not find one in our area.

Questions:

1. Is there a website that I can go to to find centers that offer supervision for non-custodial parents in certain counties in Texas?

2. Do you know any agency's that offer these services in general, other then CPS (surprisingly they are of no help to us at this time - says our case worker)?

 Thanks,
Aggiedad

Dear Socrateaser / Quick Question
« on: May 22, 2006, 10:11:22 AM »
I have filed a motion to modify in Texas with a TRO. I have custody. We have had scheduled hearings that have been changed due to attorneys schedules.

I looked on our justice website this morning concerning our case and the following was posted:

Hearings
05/12/2006 Friday 11:00am TEMPORARY ORDER
05/22/2006 Monday 8:00am SUBMISSION
05/25/2006 Thursday 8:30am TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER

Questions:
1. What is a Submission Hearing?

2. Should I have been there?

Thanks,
Aggiedad

I am looking for a place that can supervise the contact between my daughter and her mother/maternal GP's.  I have called everywhere under the sun.

CPS will only do it if they say the supervision needs to be done, regardless of a court order.  

Any suggestions on where I can look?  I have to have them for our attorney by Thursday.

Thanks,
AggieDad

Visitation Issues / Help me---I am going to mediation and am torn!
« on: May 10, 2006, 05:09:17 PM »
I want to start out by saying that I have custody of my 7 year old daughter and have had it since 2003 from a Texas court.  She lives at my residence with me, my wife and kids.  I share joint custody with her maternal grandmother. The grandmother has EOW and holidy visitation and is in charge of supervising the relationship that my daughter has with her mother.  The mother has various felonies and can no be left alone with children unsupervised.  The courts allowed the GP's to supervise the relationship with the understanding that mom was not to be living there.  As you can already tell, mom is living there.  I am taking the grandmother back to court and the judge has sent us to mediation with a current TRO in place.  I know this will not work because we have been there and done this before.  

I am seeking full custody for the protection of my daughter.  While she has been visiting with her grandmother, it has been brought to my attnetion through school personel and child protective services that my daughter is being sexually abused by her cousin at their residence, being told by her grandmother not to tell her "secrets" or she will never see her mother again, and the gmother allowing the child to be left alone with her mother unsupervised.  The child is under the age of ten and Texas Law states that there is nothing that they can do legally to this child.  CPS just offers to have a saftey plan where the kids can not be left alone unsupervised and then strongly urge me to take the matter to court and have the order changed to no overnight stays and supervision for all partied involved.  Granmother has emotionally abused this child stated by her forensic psychologist, therapist, teachers, and others who have been in contact with the child.  We have all these people coming to help us and testify for us.  I am torn about what to ask for.  I know in my heart that these people should never be allowed bakci nto her life unsupervised, but at the same time I do not want this change to negatively affect my daughter by her felling guilty for telling what has happenend to her and now everything has to change.  

I want to have some opinions on: do you think the GP's can do damage to this child if they were allowed to take the child for 4-6 hours two days a month unsupervised for visition with brief time also allowed for holidays?  We are definately only allowing time with mom unsupervised by an ouside source but what do we do with grandmother and not look unreasonable with the judge or effect my daughter and make her fill like she is being punished for coming forward and telling the truth.  I am so confused ,angry, and upset.  Angry that this is happening to my daughter, angry that the GP and mother can not just do what the court order says, and angry that they have manipulated the situation with my daughter to make her eventually fill like she did something wrong.  Please help!  

Sorry if I have mistyped words or even spelt them wrong, I am so mad right now I could spit nails, if it was possible!

Father's Issues / Need prayers and good thoughts
« on: Jun 07, 2006, 09:19:53 PM »
I have posted several times bits and pieces about my case to Soc and on the visitation issues part of the message board but I need anyone's help that will listen and pray for me and my family.

Well we are going to court TOMORROW!  Yes tomorrow.  A part of me is scared as ...., but a part of me is ready to fight this war.  I have prayed long and hard that this day will be good for my daughter and my immediate family in which she lives with and get her the help she needs to feel safe and secure when visiting with her other family.  

She needs to see her other family, but not at the expense of her being emotionally and physicaly scared for life (it has been reported to CPS and law enforcement that she has been left alone unsupervised with mom, has been sexually abused by another family member under the age of ten, and verbally threatened by a family member to not tell her secrets or she will never see them again).  I pray that her mother and grandparents will come to a logical solution to our visitaion problems and do what is in the best interest of our child and not keep fighting me on everything when they have no leg to stand on.

I have faith in my attorney and my lord (funny to put both of those in the same sentence) that things will turn out the way that they are intended to be, but I also feel that every little extra prayer will not hurt!  

Thanks to everyone who has always helped me out and provided me with encouragment and feedback to endure this long horrible process of family law court and court orders (and not to mention dealing with wonderful EX's and their mothers).
