I am from IL and I have an 8 month old son, who I saw the first week of birth and have been chased out by her and her family. We have been going to court for the past 7 months with her continuing to drag this out. Now she is saying that I have to have supervised visitation because I have been out of his life for so long. Understand this is by no fault of my own, my lawyer got the six months the ex girlfriend wanted, down to two and she is paying for it, I need to know what the long term effects of supervised visitation are, upon the possibility of my wanting joint/full custody and/or full physical custody.
I want to see my son and I am willing to do this, just so I can see him, but I want to know that this will not harm me in the long run.
