This takes a bit to explain but it is pretty straight forward. My boyfriend has been trying to recover from a 10 year on/off battle with drugs. Last week he relapsed and used drugs. He used a lot and is now going in to a long- term in-patient chemical dependency program. We need to tell the grandmother of his daughter so they know where he will be for the next couple months. He only has visitation with her on Sunday. The courts knew when they gave him visitation that he has used drugs and alcohol in the past. The daughter's family does not like my boyfriend and I am afraid they will pull his visitation because of this. He has agreed that if they choose to do so he will not fight them because he is in no shape to do so at this time. He loves his daughter but due to the lack of time they have together she thinks of him more like a "cool uncle/cousin" rather than a dad. Should he just sign away rights now or let the daughter's family decide what they want to do first? I will be doing the leg work on this one since he in in the hospital.
