I am trying to help a family member who is fighting for custody of her son. She never married the father and just found out she must file for legal custody. Of course, she found out because he filed first but she has physical custody of the child and has had since birth. He is a very unstable person (she has a protective order against him for battery) but he was still able to file for custody of their son (whom he has never held or cared for). I am not all that concerned he will be allowed custody (as I know the courts nearly always side with the mom and he has previous history of abuse against women) but I am slightly concerned he will get unsupervised visits. She has an appt with an attorney Monday, what should she tell/ask the attorney? What can she do to make sure his visits are supervised (as she fears for her childs safety) Can she get the courts to force drug testing (as he is a known user) before he takes the child if they cant get supervised visits? Can she get the courts to demand parenting classes as he has never once held or cared for a baby? What is within her rights to ask for? All help will be appreciated, thanks!
