Hi and welcome to DadsDivorce, the leader in divorce help for men, fathers rights and mens rights. We provide divorced dads with concrete, practical divorce resources to achieve the best results in the courtroom.
Tenex is the drug you listed before....so shes gone to the school and given them Tenex, and you said earlier you have wouldn't have an issue to a minimum dosage of Tenex.
So what dosage is she on?
Again, none of this has flip to do with how you feel or how she's pushing your buttons. How in the hell is what she's doing now, asking the school to admin Tenex, harming the child? Is the dose too high? Significantly higher than you agreed to? Significantly higher than the original doc prescribed? What are the side-effects of Tenex?
From what I can see on-line Tenex appears to be an effective alternative treatment to putting a child on stimulants for ADHD.
Got to tell you bud, if you don't step back & start looking at this like a neutral third party would look at it, you're only hurting yourself. If you contacted a psych with some of the accusations you've put on here wo doing your homework first, and jumping to conclusions like should you file an emergency motion, you are only looking whacky yourself and hurting your own appearance to third parties who she'll be calling as witnesses.
STOP LISTENING TO HER AND REACTING TO HER BUTTON PUSHING AND COLLECT FACTS FIRST.

Thoughts....sorry for the mis-understanding and my fault. What I said was I didn't mind the minimum dosage of tenex, .5mg which is the lowest dosage possible. My complaint is it was for hyperactivity which I did not think was that big of a deal. Now to present day, the NJ has changed it to Tourette's syndrome. That is what is listed at school now. Tourette's syndrome.....That is what I have a problem with.
He does not have anything except some hyperactivity. No other diagnosis. And two of the navy base doctors refused to even put him on .5mg. That is why the NJ seeked out, and doctor shopped to find this new psychiatrist.
Sorry, I didn't see that you wanted an evaluation. How about making an appointment on your time, informing the EX a few days before and then taking the kid? Certainly two wrongs don't make a right, but I think you could make a case that an evaluation is routine medical care- certainly non-envasive/no meds/shots, etc.
Guests.....Sounds like a plan but again, the NJ will not give me the sons Navy Base ID to get him on the base to get evaluated. This is going to have to go to Court. I just don't have a Court datge yet. The Judge is going to really let her have it this time I feel. This was all litigated January 2011. And the NJ still didn't get the evaluation?
I would suggest doing an eval yourself, bypassing NJ. Does the navy base have a develpomental psych doc, or other specialist? If NJ is preventing you from working with her to get the eval done, then work around her. Figure out a way to get it done without her. IMO, Your focus shouldn't be on fighting NJ, but on getting your kid evaluated to see if he needs help or not.
I met with an Attorney who gave me a free consultation. He stated the NJ is an idiot. No DUH!!!! He advised me to file a Motion to Dismiss and Vacate the NJ's Modification on grounds that the only thing changing is she quit a $54,000 a year job. I have completed the Dismiss motion and filed today with the Courts.
Question if you don't mind.....My Order states equal parenting-time under Florida Statute 61.13 for both parents. Under that it states any and ALL reasonable and liberal requests are to be granted. Under that it states, and in addition to the foregoing these minimum guidelines. The MINIMUM GUIDELINES outline what the MINIMUM parenting-time is to be.
So we basically have THREE levels and the NJ goes straight to the last which is MINIMUM guidelines. Now, this Friday I have out of State family and it is my weekend anyway. I informed the NJ that immediately after school since I pick the child up anyway, he can just stay with me and I will start my weekend 1 1/2 hours early. This way he can go to dinner with us.
Well, the NJ has already threatened me and informed me once again I am in Contempt if the child is not here Friday. So, the NJ states, the Father picks the child up at 300 PM after school, the NJ picks the child up from the father's house at 430 PM, then the Father picks the child up again from the Mother's house. See all this back and forth? Plus, it is my weekend anyway.
I have requested and documented numerous times these requests and all have been denied by the NJ.
Do you have any advice, legal or not on this issue?? If I keep the child friday after school and start my weekend 1 1/2 hours early, I don't think I am in contempt??
She can huff and puff but at some point you'll have to call her bluff and force her to put her cards on the table. Make her make her case and make her take it all the way to the judge. If you give in it just invites more of the same.
