Asked in Family Law and Appeals / Appellate Law for California

Q: How could I word my argument in my appellant opening brief?

Q: submitted proof of completion of programs, complied with visitation orders, requested 2 more hours a week judge denies

I’m appealing two cases, one for each of my daughters. I have complied with visitation ordered and submitted proof of completion of all requirements. I’ve been requesting only 2 more hours a week with my daughters, I only see them once a week for 2 hours. Orders been this way since juvenile exit order on 9/27/18. Judge continues to deny me my request. But the judge I have for my son, in the same superior court house, has recognized my progress, terminated supervised visitation and allowed me a minimum of 6 hours a week with my son, and if father agrees, I’m able to see my son more, as long as father agrees. I talk to my son everyday. As for my daughters , I don’t get to talk to them at all during the week, only at court ordered visit. In a public restaurant, every Saturday from 12pm to 1:30pm. I’m only requesting visits be allowed at my home for 2 more hours.
