Paid to get advice that was already on this site !

Consulted a Lawyer about this subject and I thought since I started this topic I should follow it up.

OK I have consulted a Lawyer about this subject and I thought since I started this topic I should follow it up.

I have to say that the adivce of all persons here was dead on. This is what the lawyer said.

1. Everything is admissable in court, so a party can try and bring thier own shrinks observations into the court preceddings, but the pther party can object and it is more than likely the evidence would be thrown out unless it is really relevant. In a situation where a person has taken a child into therapy without anyones consent the evidence of the DR would have to be cross examined because how the dr has treated the child would not be without some predjudice.

2. IN a case where there is an ICL no party can enroll the child in any therapy without the permission of the ICL. The therapy would have to be entirely therapuetic and not at all realted to the court case.

Therapy is considered a very serious proposition and very likely to change the outcome of the court ordered expert wittness report. For example, the lawyer explained that she had to fight for a child to get 5 sessions of therapy when the child had seen thier father try to kill themselves.

3. The best way to repond is to object, and ask the person to remove the child and get the ICL and the persons lawyer to explain to them that the child should not be there.

The child being put in the shrinks has only happened because the parties lawyer was too inexperienced to tell the party not to do this, and give them advice that their overall behaviour was verging on contempt.

I am very surprised you would begin to doubt that information in the primary forums, made by persons who hold the highest site wide credentials (See their Avatar's and know what they mean) Could in any way be doubtful or shonky nor 'Dead on". I think if you read some of the tens of thousands of threads and topics the information on here would have to be some of the most practical available anywhere. It is usually fairly accurate because the information is coming form such a wide range of knowledgeable resources.

I didnt say that I was surprised, the advice was good, its more of a confirmation that this forum is a really great resource for All family law cases. Any questions that any person might have their own case can be worked through in this portal. Dead on is my way of saying "very bloody helpful". You might not have seen where I whispered one of the replying posters with a word of thanks, but I really appreciate the guidance of the people who posted.

Testing One Two came up with a great posting about the implications and legal POV, When I said I consulted a lawyer I used it to preface providing a new posting on a quiet topic, after all if I asked that question how would I know the answer without getting a new source? The lawyers advice would have to be considered a tad more accurate than my own so that is also why I mentioned that it is the lawyers knowledge and not my own.  One of the ways I can show appreciation for this website is by sharing the legal advice I got at cost of $275p/h.

On the matter of appreciation could the site please clarify the Bsb and a/c number of the FLWG donations account, they appear a bit conjoined!

All you need to do if you feel so included is to click on this link which takes you right to the top of the forums and on the right hand side of the forum icon bar you will see a donate button with a nice yellow $ sign. You can also mouse over the "Click on this link" to see some more text about the donate facility. The BSB and The bank account are clearly shown in the text when you enter the donate page. It is struggle to keep things going so anything is appreciated.
