Q: Follow up Question my son shouldn't even know about court coming up or supervised visits she wants.
he tells me and asks me questions that no 9 yr old should know about or be told such as at his last appointment his therapist called him into room asking what we talk about on visits and phone calls so she knows what to say in court and his case manager talking to his mom in front of him saying I'm an unlikable person. can I ask before court hearing to see these reports she claims shes got from therapists that our visits are damaging to our son? Or on her motion, she says therapists reports can be obtained if needed. If in her motion there are no therapists reports added to the motion I was served can they present them in court? I'm being railroaded outta my sons life and with help from these HVMH employees, I have reported on the phone only to his therapist and case manager allegations of sexual abuse and physical for a year now with them ignoring until I threatened to report them for all their unprofessionalism and they have had it for me ever since. any advice? covering up a lot.
A: You will likely want/need a transcript of the recording if it is to be presented to the court. For now, highlighting the conversation and noting that the entire conversation is available for the court may suffice. Note that court's generally dislike parents involving the children in disputes of this nature and, depending upon the context of the conversation and how the topic arose and was handled, it could harm your case more than it helps.
