Q: My daughter is lying to say the girlfriend is verbally abusive. The daughter is manipulating the situation to say that she is right. The girlfriend is mean, and not nice. My daughter is trying to separate dad and girlfriend. My ex wife is trying to change visitation schedule to outside of the home. The son is really losing out and is sad. What can we do?
A: David’s Answer: What therapist are you talking about – an individual therapist for one of the kids, or a forensic psychologist? If it’s the former, then you can ask for a forensic evaluation. If its the latter, then retain your own forensic to pick apart the opinion of the 1st one. Schedule a consult with a Rockland/Westchester Child Custody attorney for a full assessment. – David Bliven, Westchester Child Custody attorney (www.blivenlaw.net)
