Emergency Visitation Hearing???

I have a seven month old son with my ex boyfriend. Out of the blue a month ago, he filed in court allocation of parental rights, visitation, etc... So I thought since he was interested now and since the baby and the father do not know each other, I offered for him to come to my house and visit with my son a couple of times a week. That has been sporadic on his part and now he is demanding to take him three days a week all day. I didnt agree to that, but I told him we could keep up these visits. He filed for an emergency hearing on visitation. My question is what should I expect? Is there a possibility that the court is just going to say start standard visitation. We have a pre trial in Janurary on the parental rights...I thought this was when everything would be decided. So I was just caught off guard. Thank you for your time in answering this question.

Re: Emergency Visitation Hearing???

I beleive that you have a misconception of the standard order of visitation. The standard order of visitation can be found on the following web site

Further the Court will do what is in the best interest of the child. Therefore, the court will probably give a supervised visitation at first. However, I can not be sure what the Court will do.

Good Luck
