They went to mediation because the court required it. They have been separated for over a year and in that time she has refused to let him keep the overnight... she still needed to breastfeed there 18mo old who of course was on his way to 2 in May. She needed to keep control of the kids. When she found out my son had been seeing someone else after a year of separation is when she filed for divorce and accused him of sexual abuse of their 3yr old. She recorded an interrogation of the 3yr old evidently getting him to say his dad touched him (not sure exactly what it contains). She has refused to give him a copy. When she filed this she didn't think CPS would get involved. She just thought the court would give her custody. Should my son have a divorce attorney or a criminal attorney?
