Do We need a lawyer?!?!?!?! Help.

Dh is wanting to take his ex back to court, due to several new developments since they went last time. Right now she gets Wednesday night and Thursday. And every other Friday and Saturday.

Dh wants her to drop down to state minimum for visitation (Wednesday afternoon and eowe) because ss is still struggling with routine and needs more stability.

She's now unemployed, has gotten evicted, isn't giving ss his medicine for his allergies, isn't following the treatment for ss's adhd(diet and routine), and is missing or showing up hours late for visitation. She keeps him out of preschool, doesn't make him do assignments on her time, and He also misses all extracurriculars on mom's time, even though She's co'ed to take him. She's also said she's about to get kicked out of her current living situation, and who knows where she'll go if that happens.

It's seems like a pretty cut and dry case, to me...Dh thinks we can get it changed to state guidelines without a lawyer. Idk if that will be possible. However, we hired a lawyer last time, and dh's ex signed over primary custody without it going to court. So he he may be right... What do you think? Do we have enough of a case ( this is all documented through calendars, emails from coaches and teachers, letters from doctors, etc.)

I'm always afraid I'll fill out the wrong form or miss a line of something, I'd get a lawyer just to play it safe.

I think you are a nut. Adhd isn't about routine or diet. It's.neurological.

You hippies.. don't bother quoting me with your adhd cure via diet, I dont care.

I would feel better having a lawyer, but that could be my paranoia. I suppose your husband knows her better but what if he's wrong? Does your ss like being with his mother?

Didn't read enough to prove she shouldn't keep 50/50.

 ADHD is very over diagnosed and for many kids, it is a lack of structure AND discipline.  Parents today want to make up excuses for their kids poor behavior.  I grew up in a time when this kind of behavior was never acceptable and all kids, regardless of their issues had to conform. Have you been in any classroom lately to see how much learning time these little brats take away from others? Their parents enable them to be like this and then grow up and wonder why they can't hold a freaking job.  I am sick of all the excuses.  I have been around a long time and know what I am talking about.  These kids did not have a chance to be the brats 40 yrs ago.
