The other document I am wondering if I should include is my ex's (Petitioner's Trial Brief). It of course argues against my positioning but some of the points are pure speculation against actual rules of court CRC 5.210 (e)(6) stating that this rule does not apply to my case as there was no substantial allegation of abuse or neglect made in mediation that warranted referring the issue to CPS. Arguing that an ongoing investigation into an allegation against mother at the time of mediation should not warrant the suspension or delay of the mediation process.
Petitioners lawyer is speculating on what is a substantial allegation. The rules of court for the mediation process are very clear. The manager of the FCS Mediation even told me that the report should be excluded based on it not following the rules of court. I am wanting your opinion as to whether or not you think the Trial Brief (with what I feel are the ridiculous points it makes) should be included or not.
Ok got it. I will include the FCS report.
Im not sure if the trial brief was admitted into evidence. I believe so but I am not sure. Should I just designate it on the record anyway?
Thank you. You have been a tremendous help to me in these issues. I don't have the words to tell you what it has meant to me.
