What to do if I don’t want my daughter at her grandmother’s house?

My 6 year old daughter’s father has parenting time with her every other weekend. He now lives with his mother who do to some recent circumstances, including harassment, malicious behavior, vulgarity, insulting accusations, etc.have led me to stongly appose my daughter’s weekend visitations take place at her residence. I am not opposed to visitation between his mother and my daughter but believe that it is in my daughter’s best interests to not be under the same roof with her for any extended amounts of time. What can I do legally in order to achieve this and in as minimal time as possible?

Since you are concerned about your child being around her grandmother in an unsupervised setting, you need to consult with your child's father about reaching some written agreement as to your desires. If he is unwilling to agree to such, then your option if you truly wish to push the supervised visitation with the grandmother and your daughter is to file a petition with the court seeking such.

If matters come to that stage, you should consult with a family law attorney with respect to such.
