Protecting Child from Potential Abuse
tHE FATHER OF MY 8 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS VISITATION ORDERS AND FOR THE FIRST TIME I AM VIOLATING MY ORDERS TO PROTECT HER. sHE HAS REPORTED VERBAL, EMOTIONAL,MENTAL ABUSE, PLUS HER FATHER HAS AN DRINKING INJUNCTION AND HAS BEEN DRINKING AND DRIVING WITH HER, PLUS AT HER THERAPIST I FOUND OUT HE IS ALLOWING A FAMILY MEMBER WHO WE SUSPECTED OF BEING SEXULLY INDECENT WITH HER AND AGREED NOT TO ALLOW HER TO BE ALONE WITH THIS PERSON THAT HE HAS BEEN ALLOWING MY DAUGHTER TO STAY WITH THIS PERSON DURING HER VISITATIONS WITH HIM AND ASKING HER TO LIE TO ME. I TRIED GETTING HELP FROM LEGAL AID BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE FUNDS FOR THIS TYPE OF CASE AND I CAN NOT AFFORD AN ATTORNEY. I HAVE CONTACTED CPS AND FILED A REPORT BUT MY DAUGHTER DOES NOT WANT TO GO WITH HIM AND I FEEL IF I ALLOW HER TO GO I AM BEING A NEGLECTFUL PARENT. wHAT CAN i DO AND WILL I GET INTO TROUBLE FOR PROTECTING HER? WHAT RIGHTS DO I HAVE?
You need to file a motion to restrict the father’s visitation due to the emotional and/or physical harm you believe is occurring. If you can’t afford an attorney, try calling the University of Denver law school student legal clinic, or call the Colorado Bar Association and get referrals to low fee groups and or specific attorneys.
