Can you tell me the standrad time line of courts apppinted

This answer was rated:

Can you tell me the standrad time line of courts apppinted a PC in my case? I have been to at least 6-8 sessions and feel like it is getting no where. My ex is still irrational and overly dramatic andcauses issues where there need not be. she causes more stress than need be and i wanted to know how i go about asking that the courts release the PC or how ong typicaly do i have to go? My ex thinks it is a therapy session to discuss her issues with me and why we did not work etc. How do i ask courts to release PC as we have figured out the most imporant thing that was vacation time (she was unwilling to giv eme prior to PC) and rotation of holidays every year (again she was unwilling to giv eme prior to PC) so i feel what was needed has been recvd as i d nto care to take thearpy sessions with my ex. and feel it is getting no where and ramainns stagnent while sinking out $150 a session, which i cant afford and she has not even ever paid her portion.

Any advise is appreciated.

Thank you

Please note that you are asked to rate my courtesy and professionalism, and not whether the answer supports your legal position. I only receive credit when rated 3 or higher.

There may be a slight delay in response time, as I may be helping with other questions or I may be away from the computer. I will answer any follow-up questions as soon I can.

Start by looking at the order to see if the judge ordered a specific number of sessions. There isn't really a set number ordered in all cases. If he didn't, you can go back to the judge, and file a Motion to Terminate PC, then explain what you've explained here. Tell him that the sessions are not beneficial to either party, that you cannot afford to do more, and that your ex has not paid. If the initial order tells her to pay for half, you can ask him to hold her in Contempt of Court for not paying. It would help if you could get the counselor to agree that continued session don't benefit anyone.
