Violation of stipulation order??
1 attorney answer
Legal custody rights include making medical decisions for a child. Mental health care is a medical decision. Per Rivero v. Rivero, joint legal custody vests the medical decision making with both parents. If the parents agree, then there is no issue. If they disagree, status quo remains until they agree or a court says otherwise.
From what you are saying the other parent is in violation of your joint legal custody rights. The remedy is to file for an order to show cause and to have the child sent to a proper medical care facility.
These issues are quite complex. You should consult with and probably hire an experienced attorney. Filing the wrong paperwork, filling out the paperwork incorrectly, and/or requesting the wrong relief can amplify the issues you are having.
