Q: My wife will not let me see my daughter without her being there. We are not divorced yet. What do I do
My wife left with my daughter last September. We are not divorced yet but she says I can not see her without being supervised. Also every time she wants to set up a visit it is concierge for her only or if she is wanting something.
A: You need to get a family law attorney and go to court to get orders specifying when, where and how long you and her get to see your children. That way if it is “your time” and she refuses you can seek enforcement from the court, which can include jail time for her.
A: Depending on your cirucmumstnacs, the age of your child, and evidence to show you should not have a standard possession order, your wife may or may not restrict your access to your child. Given the panic from the Pandemic, best to lawyer up and get a hearing as the courts are going to be pretty full in May, most are allowing some hearings in April, but more so with family violence, CPS cases.
