The judge failed to acknowledge several points I brought up on my RFO. I feel that they are important to address due to the high level of parental conflict. I feel if they were addressed and had orders made on them that the amount of conflict would greatly be diminished. What can I do to address this?
Probably nothing - there is a very limited orders that can change a person's behavior to avoid conflict. The court cannot order the other party to change.
Judges dread high conflict cases. Ms. Routledge us correct. The court cannot change this. Bill Eddy, JD, LCSW, has resources. Google his name, and High Conflict Institute.
All of Ms. Straus’ responses posted on Avvo are intended as helpful information, based solely upon the facts stated in the question, and are not to be relied upon as a full or complete legal opinion. It may not be what you wished to hear, and it does not create an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Straus has been licensed to practice law in California for 33 years. Ms. Straus regrets that she does not provide follow up free advice via email. Good luck.
I concur with my colleagues. Unfortunately everything does not always get addressed and resolved in a short RFO hearing. Are you represented by an attorney? Is he? In your area there may be a high conflict co-parenting course that you could suggest or the Court can order both of you to participate in From experience that has been helpful in my high-conflict cases. Good luck.
