Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to assist.
If you agreed in court before the judge to have this test done, then you'd be obligated to do it IF the judge issued an ORDER directing that this be done. However, if you have changed your mind and want to withdraw, you can BUT you'd have to file a motion with the court asking to withdraw the agreement.
You can explain to the judge that you can't afford the test and that you can't proceed because of the financial issue.
Thanks for your question, and if you need anything further, please do not hesitate to ask.
The mediating attorney said I had to sign because if I dont the judge would ask anyways. I feel I have been profiled . Thank you so very much with your help I will go to court and file a motion. Will I have to go in front of the judge again and the mediator for this ? I find it very upsetting.
Last April the baby's father made a false accusations against me. DCF cleared me.
I had been a theraputic foster parent for 14 years prior to being my grandsons foster parent. Shouldn't my life and references be enough ? I feel like I am being bullied and looked upon with clouded vision because of the mistakes my daughter has done.
If you agreed to do this, then you're likely going to have to go before the judge via motion and ask that you be allowed to withdraw that agreement. If the financial concern is the issue, the judge can relieve you of your obligation; it may even be possible that there's a way to have the test done at a less expensive rate. You'll just have to speak with the judge about how to resolve this.
