You might remember X hit difficult child 1. difficult child 1 told the school. School reported it to cps. Now, difficult child 1 is saying it wasn't as big a deal as he said it was before. Cps says there isn't enough to do anything with. I called my lawyer. He said the if we could get the school therapist to write a statement saying what difficult child 1 told her we could get a protective order. That would stop visitation until a GAL could be brought in and investigate. School therapist asked her bosses if she could. They said no. If lawyer has already filed the paperwork with the court we (I and difficult child 1) are in big hot water. I'm hoping he hasn't yet. I want that statement in hand before filing. No, this is not done. I am going to ask lawyer if the statement to cps will be enough. The problem is that the school therapist tells the social worker from the school and the social worker tells cps. Cps gets it 3rd hand. I'm not sure that will be good in court. In the shock of the moment I didn't ask school therapist which of her bosses said no. Now I get to track her down and ask. And then go after that person and ask them some questions. What would they do if this was their child? How is a school therapist supposed to report on "just academics"? I was a teacher and I reported to the court. I know the court will accept her statement. Don't they care enough about the child to repeat what he said to the court? He has no voice in court.
