Greetings. I am not a psychologist or mental health expert, so what I think is irrelevant. What I know is that judges generally want both parents to be actively involved in the child’s life. Just because a parent makes a mistake and does not get actively involved at first, it does not mean that they cannot correct their behavior and be a positive influence on the child. It sounds to me like the judge intends to change the order after nine weeks to more time if the other parent is attending the visitations. Best of luck.
