We divorse in 2003. No religions, due to speeach therapy was on ARD, He is excuse himself of not belive on medication or amy mental health treatment.
So far I since early child I had 3 lawyers. This one will be the last one. God bless. On 6-8 is mediation.
6-15 a court date, actually request by my ex. I fill I have so much information medically from ER, MH, and my ex- pass I not enough information to go to a trial. If I have the total custody on medical, school right, I will be (I thing) fine.
on 2011, the ER doctor referrer to go 6 week treatment outpatient, was done but the 1rst day was in the school/treatment center. The center calls me as emergency because he refuses to treat my child. Then I did have to remove.
Now her therapy requests a high conflict divorce therapist. She did provide the name to help my child continue treatment because she is not able, because my ex will not show to his appointment with my daughter last week. Now I need to check in this new therapist on expert on high conflict divorce. My baby is in the middle of the conflict no matter with parent is right, especially as he talks..."you do not need medication, you're not stupid, or repeat as he said at the teacher school meeting... "Other kid talk that ...she is on special (ed) education. My ex- is a bully himself. I m looking for advicate group to help but it is hard. I continue working on.
Kathy,The only (two really) options you may have left would be to consider giling for a contempt of court order against the other parent, if you have a custodial decree under which he is required to provide medical care for the child. If that is missing, and you honestly believe that your child is in medical danger from his neglect and refusal to give her medication, then instead come to court and file for an emergency sole custody petition via an 'ex parte' hearing. An ex parte hearing is a hearing held usually with just one party, so if a judge is convinced by you that the other parent is somehow unfit or dangerous, then he could grant you immediate sole rights. They would last for a short time, but it would be enough for you to start a formal petition for modification of custody in your favor.Good luck.
What is giling?
Kathy,I am sorry, that was a typo--my apologies. For some reason my spell-check did not see it--I meant to type 'going', as in pursung a contempt of court petition. Sorry for the confusion.
