I had a tentative decision last week from the judge in my custody case that my daughter was coming to live w/me. She's been failing school & was kicked out of a Private Christian School for her grades. My ex essentially had no way out - he's hadn't done anything to help my daughter and the school counselor came to testify to that. The judge told his counsel to tell him it would be better if he agreed and everyone work together with the move. He wouldn't budge. The judge said he was entitled to "due process" so we came back this week for a trial. Before the trial started, Minors Counsel requested to talk to the judge in chambers alone. (BIG mistake) Everyone agreed. After 45 min. the judge came out, cleared the courtroom, and proceeded to tell us that my daughter had severe emotional issues that needed to be dealt with immediately before she was going to make any changes. She then sealed the records. ??? What the heck??? I still don't know what she was referring to, and I can't see the transcripts. Is that legal? I am my child's parent. If she has some type of emotional problem shouldn't I be entitled to know about it and who made minors counsel a mental health professional? The judge ordered my daughter to be in therapy a minimum of 2 times per week based on what minors counsel told her. My daughter has a therapist that she saw the day before all of this happened and she is amazed & baffled that minors counsel didn't even consult her to what was going on (minors counsel consulted her the week prior & told her she was recommending my daughter come live with me). What can I do? This court and the judge is like a good old boys club- they do whatever they want. Help!
