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.
A: Assuming you have a settlement agreement which specifically mentions that you’ll use the particular Parenting Coordinator, then you’d need to either get consent from the opposing party or go back to court on a modification application. As an alternative, you may suggest utilizing programs such as “2 Houses” or “Our Family Wizard” for at least some of the issues (they’re far cheaper than a P.C.).
