Is There Anyone That Can Share How Guardianship Of Your Adult Child Has Worked Between The Mother And Father That Are Divorced.

we are in reverse situation. I'm step mom and my husband has had primary custody of his son for almost 4 years, the mom whose visitation was suspended by the courts a year and half ago due to lack of payment, content of court etc. However, son has just turned 18 and my husband is going after guardianship, in our state they award temporary allowing others to contest etc prior to the permanent guardianship goes into effect. The mother after a year and half of no visitation, calls, cards or anything (no emails either asking how he was doing) has now come forward requesting. We are extremely concerned on how a non-verbal autistic violent adult will react. We want a supervised trained professional to do the visit, and we are finding no one who will help unless we get it court ordered. (We want supervised because at the end she couldn't handle his aggressions and had to get him numerous times in her short visits then) My husband doesn't get along with her, she states she is afraid of him but wants him to be the 3rd party visit so he can handle the son. (doesn't make sense) I wish you luck but i'm surprised a state would award full guardianship right off the bat.
