    There is always a concern that an unrepresented party will run up their spouse's legal fees with unnecessary or unwanted communication. Ultimately, it would seem the remedies are two-fold:

    (1) get into mediation or some other form of alternate dispute resolution where a neutral party can referee the communication issues and document requests.

    (2) expect that cooperation will not occur and prepare for trial by acquiring your supporting evidence and/or filing motions seeking discovery r seeking to compel discovery where necessary information is not provided.

    My 10 yr old contracted MRSA while spending a 1 week session at a summer camp. Can I sue them?
