Most parents are able to spend time with their children alone, even if they are no longer in a relationship with the other parent. They may be able to enjoy quality time with their children, from taking them to restaurants, on day trips, and even out of state or out of the country on vacation.
However, not all parents are able to enjoy these liberties. If a non-custodial parent is deemed to be a risk to the child in some way or has been found to not have adequately cared for their child on a visit, they may only be able to visit their child when supervised. If you have a supervised visitation order in place, you will likely feel frustrated and believe that it is simply not necessary.
Perhaps you had a problem with alcohol in the past, but have completed rehab and are now dedicated to staying sober. To have an order overturned, you will likely need to do the following things.
Find out if the order can be overturned
In some circumstances, something that you did could mean that you’ll never be able to be alone with your child again. However, in many situations, the order can be overturned by showing a change in circumstances.
Prove yourself to be a good parent
You should show that you are committed to your child and that a change of circumstances has occurred. You should also be able to show that being alone with your child is in their best interests.
If you want to stop supervised visitation, you will need to file a motion of modified custody. Make sure that you take action to have a better relationship with your child.
