The court agreed that a forensic psych be brought in because my wife’s story and my story were so divergent. During his meetings the forensic inquired about speaking to our old marriage counselor because my wife and I had full stayaways and meeting with both parents together is part of his standard procedure. When we got the report back I noticed that my wife gave him the wrong name of our counselor (we only had one) and the forensic claimed he was dead so he never talked with him. I emailed our old counselor and he’s alive. I informed the forensic prior to all this that my wife told our counselor not to release any info without her consent and that she probably wouldn’t allow it. So instead of just saying no (which would raise a red flag) she purposely gave him false info about our counselor to keep the forensic from reviewing info that could affect his recommendation of custody and her credibility. Is this a big deal? Should the judge be informed? Shouldn't (or couldn’t) the fact she covered things up have an affect on the report’s outcome and our divorce? The court has already caught my wife lying about a huge sum of money and there are other pressing matters to go over
You really should speak with your attorney to discuss this matter.

As Mr. Treuhaft advises, you should speak with your attorney about this. If you don't have one, you should strongly consider retaining one as it is difficult to navigate custody proceedings without an attorney. Good luck!
