First, thank you for your empathy. If requesting suplementation is the best way for me to go, I will pursue that.
I just spent time going through Rule 5.210, I have highlighted several items which I will discuss with the manager' which I hope for him to take into account for the supplementation. There is an item I want to ask you about. In regards XXXXX XXXXX item:
(d) Responsibility for Mediation Services
(6) Suspension or discontinuance of mediation if allegation of child abuse or neglect are made until a designated agency performs an investigation and reports a case determination to the mediator.
Prior to mediation, I had asked for a postponement (1) because it upset my son being 2 days before his birthday (his counselor's letter outlines that he should not have been made to participate), and (2) because the paperwork they sent me does not speak to a person representing themselves (without a lawyer) and therefore I was unclear on how to submit my documents for consideration.
My ex has submitted an email alleging that I gave my son RX medication. I was an email from him to me that I didn't respond to. An a generic note from my son's Dr that says to whom it may concern, child shold not be given Ambien. A CPS worker and I have been in touch but have not been able to meet due to the holidays. Given the fact that my ex made this allegation shouldn't the mediator have postponed?
Instead she said, "There is no proof of this, " so let's just keep going.
