I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Does the court order specifically give either of you the ability to make medical decisions without the other parent? Does it require you to discuss non-emergency medical issues?
Read through it. If it doesn't specifically require her to consult with you, then she may not have violated the order. But you could file a motion asking the judge to modify the order to clarify that each parent needs to consult the other before seeking medical treatment for non-emergencies (or non-urgent situations). That way, if she does something like this again, then she'd be in violation of the court order and a judge could penalize her.
But read the order first to see if there's language you can use to show that she violated it.
Do you have any other questions about this?
