Happy New Year! I have a new issue. Me and my ex are trying to work out our custody issue. I was planning to get 70/30 but he wants 50/50.
I wanted to remind you that he had domestic violence
which was dismissed because I didn't pursue it, he went to rehab for drug abuse and he has depression, generalized anxiety and ADD for which he is taking medication daily.
My ex just sent me text where he informed me that he is meeting with his psychotherapist on our son's behalf, and he will try to prove that I am paranoid and I am a hoarder and that our child doesn't progress with me and it is not beneficial and even dangerous for him to be with me. By the way, since our child was diagnosed with autism, he had therapy and he is making a lot of progress- he started talking.
I do have some stuff in boxes in my bedroom that I didn't unbox since our move because I was very stressed out about our divorce
. My living room is clean and picked up.
He said that his psychotherapist will connect him with their legal team, and she will be willing to be the witness in court re: custody case. This doesn't sound right. Does psychotherapist has access to lawyers? Can she testify about my character and mental state if she is not my dr and she didn't evaluate me?
I heard about 730 custody evaluation
. I heard that it could be very expensive- from 3 to 7K and we would have to pay for that. Is it correct? Thank you.
