Just got a call from school counselor that she spoke to my ex husband lawyer. Does she have a right to do that? Is there any kind of privacy for my child? It feels violating but I don't know if it is.
This really depends on your parenting plan. You may want to contact your family law attorney to clarify what your ex-husband's rights are as to your daughter. If he is violating your parenting plan by contacting the school, you can take him back to court to get him to stop. As far as the school, unless you provide them with a court order which provides that Dad does not have any rights as to his daughter, they would have no reason not to talk to him.
Sounds like your ex has given permission. The school is not a court and does not want to waste time dealing with your and your ex's custody issues. It is also possible the lawyer got an order from the court to allow this. As noted, you should have an attorney review your agreement to see if this is permitted.
