Q: one last question. I appreciate you and this site you been so much help for people who can't afford representation.
Now with having joint legal custody of 9 yr old son and his case manager and therapist never meeting me in person and solely going on the words of my angry ex-wife towards me and being very unprofessional and bias toward me. Do I have the right to take them both off my son's case? since I never was asked or given a chance to help decide his therapy or anything anyway. And what are the steps I would go threw? and can I ask for that if its gotta go before a judge in this modification of visitation hearing on march tenth there involved in? Or would I half to go through Hiawatha valley mental health in Winona Mn where there employed through? Thanks again
A: If you have joint legal custody, you have equal say in determining medical/psychiatric treatment. You should have been consulted prior to starting therapy. You should raise to the court the fact that you weren’t and can then ask that they be removed for bias or other reasons.
