My 18 month old daughter does not know her father or his family, she has only seen them a handful of times yet they think they should be able to come and pick her up without me around. I will admit I have many issues with them and don't trust them. BUT,outside of that my daughter has health issues and food allergies they are not concerned about knowing. I suggested they come to my home to get to know her regularly before I let her just go with them, they don't want to do this. My family seems to think eventually they may try to take me to court for visitation. What rights do I have in expressing my desire to have them initially be on a supervised basis only?

Well, your concerns sound reasonable but I'm not understanding where you're at and where the child's father lives.....I have limited time to do this, but I will tell you that if this involves going to the Franklin county ohio (cols.) domestic relations court on this issue, fasten your seatbelt...they are notoriously abusive and corrupt....If you want to safeguard your child, you had better muster all the money you can for the most expensive lawyer you can afford (or at least one more expensive than he will have) because that's the name of the game with them: M-O-N-E-Y--and making money on these kinds of situations---I know all about that.....

There are many resources available to persons of all income levels, and I doubt the majority of city data posters are qualified to give legal advice on your specific situation. Please refer to the below organizations, as one or more may be able to assist you. The court and its employees do not provide legal advice, nor should they.

Columbus Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service (221-0754) – referrals to private, fee-based legal services

Community Mediation Services (228-7191) – general mediation services, some free and some fee-based


Legal Aid Society of Columbus (224-8374) – general legal services for persons with low income

OSU College of Law Legal Clinic (292-6821) – advice and representation on selected matters, generally restricted to persons with low income


Capital Law School Legal Clinic (236-6245) – advice and representation on selected matters, generally restricted to persons with low income

What You Should Know About Ohio’s Laws – general information about common legal issues, provided by the Ohio State Bar Association
