When parents disagree on matters of a child’s health, significant problems can arise when it comes to decision making in a custody framework.
The problems are worse when one spouse has the legal authority to make important decisions, like whether to seek help for mental health conditions, but doesn’t agree that there are problems that need to be addressed.
If you believe your child might be a danger to himself or others, you should contact an attorney immediately to petition the court for a hearing on the matter.
Modifying custody isn’t an easy thing, but your child’s health and safety are paramount, and if you have reason to believe that there are unaddressed issues, you have an obligation to act as your child’s advocate.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you get relief for your concerns as soon as possible.
Sometimes just letting your former spouse know you’re working with an attorney is enough to prompt them to seek out counseling or other help for your child.
