Not knowing all the circumstances it is hard to give an informed response. Your ex can tell the court he does not agree with the recommendation and request a contested hearing. If your ex has an alcohol problem I would think if your ex does want a contested hearing the judge will issue temporary orders which follow the recommendations.

It is impossible to say because each case is different. But a judge will often take the court appointed mediator's suggestions into consideration.
