What are the chances of getting a parent coordinator removed? I can't afford her fees ($400 per hour).

Q: My ex uses her for every thing and she has agreed with him on all 15 issues since she started 10 months ago. She has billed us over $14,000 since December. I pay 40% of the bill- although my ex makes 7 times as much as me. There is no time limit on her services in the agreement and I if i don't agree with her, I have to go to court to oppose it. Also, she has critized my parenting, order me and my boyfriend to meet with her, decided my 4 yo needed therapy and sends me nasty emails about not paying her and copies my ex on the emails. This is just some of the stuff.

Q: My Son is 12. He's been in therapy for a few years in regard to a bad relationship with his Father & Father's live in Paramour. As he's gotten older his relationship with both the Dad and GF has deteriorated. He no longer feels comfortable being in their company and has NO relationship with his Dad.

Therapist has said it's in the best interest of my Son not to be with his Dad based on bad experiences and that my Son can refuse to go. Attorney says, therapist doesn't know legalities. Not easy being a Mom sandwiched in between. I've sent/forced my Son every time he's was scheduled to see his Dad, even the weekends. the situation has gotten progressively worse. HELP!
