Therapist for Custody & Visitation
My ex-husband, who has battled drug addiction for the last several years, has recently claimed a year of sobriety and would like to be reunited with our four-year old son. He has not seen our son in two years (and his presence in his life has been sporadic, at best, since our son was 5 months old). Our son does not remember his father nor does he even think he has a daddy. My attorney suggested that I contact a mental health expert to evaulate the impact of him coming back into the picture and mediate the process. I got a list of therapists from my insurance, but wondered if anyone here has had a similar experience - and can recommend someone. I want to do the right thing by my son (if in fact my ex has managed to stay sober for a year and is sincere in building this relationship); I just don't know the best way to go about it. Anyway, I look forward to your thoughts...
I am in need of recommendation for a special master (or I have heard them also
referred to as parent coordinators). My childrens' father and I are not in agreement
as far as how to raise our kids, and we need a coach/referee, as well as someone to
help us mediate decisions, custody schedules, and help us follow our child care
arrangements. Ideally this person would also help us plan out our schedules and
keep us both accountable to the plans we have made together. They would also help
us settle disbutes when we can not do so ourselves (most of the time). I am hoping
to find someone who will prioritize the childrens' needs in all of the decisions and
plans. Thank you for any advice on finding this person!
