Recent Parenting Coordinator questions

In Az., If one parent requests a family parenting

In Az., If one parent requests a family parenting coordinator but the other is opposed to one, how would this be resolved? I'm totally against a parenting coordinator much less hiring one. my ex- wants to hire one simply because she will not reveal identity of her latest boyfriend. I feel I have the right to reveal his identity for the sake of my daughters safety. My ex has a criminal history; discharging a firearm at her boyfriend of her recent past. Because she will not reveal his identity only makes me suspicious of the same person of which contact is prohibitive in both the criminal and family court order

I live in Arizona and neither x spouse is currently lawyered

Hi. I live in Arizona and neither x spouse is currently lawyered up since the divorce. However, my x spouse isnt compliant with current orders and it looks like I need to hire a lawyer whom I have already picked out. My main concern is that he is goingto increase my attorney fees by sending correspondence to my lawyer to intentionally inflate my bill and I am wondering if there is a way I can get around him doing that. For instance, could I request my new lawyer-to-be to file for a parenting coordinatorthat both spouses be 50% responsible for and that all types of correspondence be channeled through that designated person only? Please let me know if this idea would work or/and any other ideas that would work. Thank you, ***** *****

I have been assigned a parenting coordinator in the state of

I have been assigned a parenting coordinator in the state of Louisiana as part of a long drawn out caustic divorce.. This was established in April of this year and since there are still continued issues that continue, all of which are pressed by my ex. some daily but always weekly. The parenting coordinator seems to be overly one sided in many, If not all the suggestions or his findings. There was recently an event where my ex physically assaulted my 10 year old son. He has now turned it around that my 60# ***** assaulted my ex with a knife, however the knife in question was never taken from my son and this explanation came days after the event. Child protective services were called and an investigation is still continuing as we speak. However, within days the parenting coordinator wrote a recommendation that he feels this is all just a misunderstanding and all charges should be dropped and they should immediately enter therapy together. This has traumatized my son and I have already taken him to a trauma therapist which evaluated him for over an hour. It was an intense session that my son cried during the entire session.My question is how do we change the agreement that placed the parenting coordinator in the first place. It was not forced by the courts it was an agreement pushed by his attorney. Can we change or "fire" the parenting coordinator?

Doing a child support modification in. I am a disabled

Doing a child support modification in Virginia. I am a disabled veteran and receive Social Security Disability, my daughter receives auxiliary benefits. My ex-wife is the representative payee for daughter.She is claiming that I need to apply my daughters benefits ($1,000) to my income when determining total income for determining child support. Is this true? If she is the one with control of the benefits, why wouldn't she have to apply this to her income?Anyone know the appropriate code or law reference regarding this?Thank You

My ex is extremly litigious - when it does not cost her

My ex is extremly litigious - when it does not cost her anything. Post-divorce, our Judge order (with both parties concurrence) a "Parenting Coordinator" to future disputes so that both parties would have "skin in the game" (fees to pay). Ex took foreverto pay the retainer, at which point I paid my retainer. Parenting Coordinator's mandate to to rule on "future disputes" rather than the Judge. Shortly after received both retainers, the Parenting Coordinator wants us to meet and agree on our parenting timeschedule for this school year. This has actually not been and is not now an area of contention. The Indiana Parenting Guidelines are pretty clear. It's beyond the mandate of the Judge for the Parenting Coordinator and appears to me to be an attempt to generatesome fee's from us. Am I missing something?
