How far does a father have to go to get supervised visits?

My BD is 20 and my son is 3.
What would he have to do so he would have supervised visits?
He posts a lot of him drinking (which is underage), and also him cracking jokes that are inappropriate about women and different stuff like that.

Like the others have said, unless he is a danger to the child then he won't get supervised visits.

My ex husband is an alcoholic but isn't a danger to the children. He does provide for them when he has them so just drinking isn't enough to stop him having a relationship with his child.
My ex husband has lost his license through drink driving and he knows that if I see (or get told he has been) him driving around I will take the children away from him. So far he hasn't driven in 3.5 years! He still drinks all the time though.

Yes, I understand where you are coming from. Thank you for replying. I just know he isn't and wouldn't be a fit father. But of course, I know him and no one else does. But thank you.

Maybe it is just me but I think that is crazy. No one will have proof that he is drinking around my son. But everyone knows he does drink. I don't know maybe its just me.

Oh wow. That just scares me, knowing that he could have my son all to his own. And me not knowing what is going on or how everything is going. I just don't think I could do it.

None of that makes him an unfit father. Unless you have evidence that he is drinking excessively around the child, or a clear danger to the child, then he is entitled to have access to his child.

Those things are not enough to get him supervised visits at all. You posted another post basically asking the same thing. I told you what you needed to do to get that taken care of.

You have to prove he is unfit!
