Ex Failed Both Court Evaluations but Never Went to Rehab or Batterers Intervention Program, Wants UNSUPERVISED?

Question by Lynette: Ex failed both court evaluations but never went to rehab or batterers intervention program, wants UNSUPERVISED?
Firstly, we’re in Washington state.
Secondly, I am the SOLE custodial parent-legal & physical.

Ex was ordered SUPERVISED visitation with children and to take a drug & alcohol evaluation, as well as a domestic violence evaluation and to “comply with all suggestions”-that is the order, it was written Sept. 2012.

Ex waits until a year later Sept and Oct 2013 to take evals, he fails BOTH, is referred to “58 week Batterers Intervention Programs” and “Intensive Out Patient” treatment, with random U.A.

Ex serves me with papers asking for UNsupervised visits now.

What are the LOOP holes, IF ANY, that would cause the SAME judge to change their mind and give UNsupervised visitation without him “complying with” the evaluators “suggestions”?

He’s an absolute sociopath (HAS EVERY DSM CRITERIA LISTED) and I am SCARED, with NO MONEY for a lawyer.

Thank you!

How does he have money for a lawyer? There would be no reason for the judge to reverse a decision. You think you don’t have money for a lawyer, if you are poor they have legal services

If he’s got a good lawyer, they could look for loop holes based on tiny things that none of us on here can pick out. If he’s that bad, you need to get a lawyer. Talk to legal aid or speak to a lawyer locally and see if you can be put on a payment plan. He’s a sociopath who wants access to your children unsupervised. Find away to get good help.
