This question is for Alexia Esq., Sorry to hear about the water heater, hope it is back up and running :) I was just annoyed by the system because I chose you...then did not get you. I will definitely rate Mary's answer as you suggested. After rereading my original question I think that I should have been more specific. The psych evaluator says that my wife is not a danger to our daughter and wrote his summary assuming her lies were facts. He did absolutely no due diligence to prove her accusations. Apparently my wife accused me of abusing her, belittling her, yelling at her etc which is all bull. I have recording wherein she says that I never abused, belittled or yelled....the psyche evaluator never even asked me if I did such things!!!! My wife's mother was known to abuse her in childhood and the psych evaluator kept putting me in the same sentence as her like we were equals! The problem is that I did not know she was accusing me of such things. She never put that in her original affidavit when she filed for divorce or motion for temporary custody, just came up in sessions with various mental health professionals. Had I known, I would have spent significant time during my interviews with the psychologist and parenting investigator attacking those lies. I think I can sum it up best; can you explain the influence of the psych evaluation on the parenting investigation and/or eventually the judge? Does the fact that she has no friends/family, has diagnosed mental health issues, and the aforementioned incidents over the past year mean anything to the parenting investigator or judge? Again I am just worried about the "weight" of that bull report. Thanks
