Q: My ex-boyfriend got a domestic assault charge and i’m worried for my child, can i deny visitation?
the legal father of my daughter got a domestic assault charge for beating up his now ex-girlfriend in november, he made me believe she was lying but she recently showed me the evidence and i’m now concerned for my child’s safety as there was an incident where all of her teeth became intruded and he said that she fell on the carpeted floor, he also did not take her to the hospital or dentist. i no longer feel comfortable sending her with him, do i have to let him get his visitation time?
A: Is there a court order granting him visitation? If not, you can certainly withhold visitation. If there is a court order granting visitation, you would need to go to court to get that changed or get an OFP or HRO restricting contact with your child.
