If my child’s father is currently on probation for DV and I was the victim, what do I have to do to establish court supervision regarding visitation?

We attempted to work through our issues however he proved that he wasn’t going to change, he did this by threatening me, raising his hand to me, and making me “make things better or he was going to end up in jail again”. I have made the smart decision to leave him and he has been served with an order of protection. What kind of forms will I need to fill out?

Have there been any orders as to paternity, custody, support or visitiation at all here?  You will need to go to family court to establish all of these things and if there is an order of protection in place then you will ask the court to establish supervised visitation.  The court should have help for you to ask and may even appoint an attrney.  Good luck.
