In California, is there a provision in the law for the family court to order a mental health evaluation of my partner (divorce pending) for mental challenges causing behaviors that has caused reasons for the divorce? Narcissistic, sociopathic, and psychopathic in nature. 40 yr old white female from eastern Europe. Has 15 yr old daughter who is directly being effected by her mother and the pending divorce. No, this is not a retaliation. She's good enough to manipulate the family therapist into providing a false written statement against me based on a covert smear campaign delivered from my partner and in person three times. Effective so far at manipulation two superior court judges based on lies.Secondly, what legal recourse if any do I have with the family therapist? I've already filed a complaint with the licensing place and that process continues. When confronting the psychotherapist, she twists timeline of events and how they actually happened. Yes, I believe she chose sides.

Thank you. Take you time.

You can write the divorce court judge here for such an evaluation or have your lawyer motion the court.Either way the court may set it for hearing and may grant such a request if you have valid reasons.You would have to get the judge to agree to your request.

Thank you. And the second question?

Secondly, what legal recourse if any do I have with the family therapist? I've already filed a complaint with the licensing place and that process continues. When confronting the psychotherapist, she twists timeline of events and how they actually happened. Yes, I believe she chose sides.

You might ask court for a second opinion here.This person appear biased as you state.You deserve a second opinion motion the judge or write them.
