    Visitation

    My daughters mother has been in jail for three and a half years and has never attempted to see my daughter or write to her until this year when she took me to court for visitation back in May. The judge granted her a once a month visit with my daughter. I never received any paper work from her. I am now being summoned back to court on a motion for contempt. Is there any way that I can appeal what the judge has granted due to there not being anyone to bring her? Will I be at fault for this when in reality her mother was the one who never sent me the paper work from jail?

    If you had no notice of the hearing or the custody agreement, I don't see how you can be in contempt. Explain to the judge that you never received a copy of the child custody order that was in effect and did not know you had to bring your daughter to her mother (if that is what it said).
