Thank you.

Does the courts usually award visition and do they include overnight visits for a parent with past history of child abuse? The parent still has custody of the child that was abused. Will the courts see this as a good thing?

Dear Tammy:

The court looks at every issue and topic which the parties put in

Dear Tammy:

Let’s try this again (small power outage here at home due to the storm ended my last post prematurely).

The court will look at all the evidence which you put in front of the judge. Your attorney needs to plan the evidence accordingly to show what your past problems were, how you have changed and overcome, and what the situation is now and how that benefits the child. Remember that your child, not you, is the focus of the hearing. Best of luck.

Thank you for your time.

The child abuse charged was for my ex-husband, the father of my child. We are going to court next week for temporary child custody and child support. This information was just found out. I did not know that he had this charge when I married him. He has not seen our child in almost two years. Our child is still a toddler. I am really upset that he will get overnight visits. How long do you think the judge will give him supervised visits, is there a set limit? He doesn’t live in this county, he has to travel a long way. He has never paid any support for our child.

Thank you.

Dear Tammy:

Greetings. There is no set guideline or standard for when a judge will give supervised/unsupervised or overnight visitations. Each case is different - different parties, different facts, different child. The judge must rule based on all evidence that is placed in front of the judge as they do not know anything else about either of you.

Make sure that both you and your attorney are ready. Practice your testimony with your attorney, get a copy of it and read it over, ask what to do if you get mad/upset, etc. Best of luck.

Hello ;

When a person is going to court for child custody, will it hurt them if they had a child abuse case seven years ago?

Thanks.
