Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My partner is currently working on filing an emergency motion for the fact that his ex partner has went against their separation agreement by withholding access to his child. In their separation agreement it states that he is able to have information about any health care professionals his son sees and is able to inquire from directly. His son was diagnosed with a speech delay and was briefly seeing a speech therapist- which he gave extra child support to the mother to cover this extraordinary cost. At the time he took her word as gospel but is now having doubts. He just recently asked her for the contact information of the speech therapist his son was seeing and she is denying him that information with the reasoning that "the child no longer sees the professional so he doesn't need to know that info". Is my partner able to include in the emergency motion that she is purposely withholding Healthcare information from my partner which violates a term of their separation agreement? She also refused to give him the name and contact information of the child's family doctor until recently, but still refuses to list him as guardian or on the emergency contact list at all.

Good evening– sorry to hear about your situation. Can you please clarify your legal question?

Customer
My partner has a domestic contract separation agreement with his ex. In the agreement it states he is to have access to all health, school, summer camp etc information about his child and can make inquiries whenever he would like. He also pays towards extra costs required with his sons extra costs like daycare, specialists etc. Last year his ex stated that his son was diagnosed with a speech delay and needed a costly speech therapist- he gave her the extra amount she requested and said she needed for his sons specialist. He recently found out that his son hasn't been seeing a specialist for awhile and the ex never notified him of this. With plenty of issues arising he decided to ask her for the speech therapists contact information so he can inquire about his sons diagnosis, recommendations, sessions etc. She has refused to give him the name or contact information of the speech therapist at all.
Customer
The screenshot attached is of her friend notifying me that she will not provide that information to my partner (she refuses to talk to him or me and uses her friend as a "third party" she demanded).

Quite the difficult situation. Your partner is taking the correct step to have the court enforce the domestic contract.

Customer
My partner is currently already in the process of filing a motion and affidavits since their settlement agreement was not registered in courts. He is also working on a motion without notice (emergency) for all of the terms if the agreement she has willingly went against including denying him access to his child- is he able to include without holding medical information like the special therapist and family doctor contacts something that should be mentioned to help with obtaining an emergency order?

Might as well include everything.

Customer
She is now refusing to tell him the name of the speech therapy program Matteo attending and said she will send him documents about it when she wants to- but that he isn't allowed to call the program himself to have all documents sent directly to him.
Customer
Is it a situation worthy to mention in an ex parte motion? Since affidavits are supposed to be short and sweet with the most important information he wants to be able to include only what would be detrimental to getting his emergency motion to have the child in his temporary care.

Including a line or two about it would help show a continual  pattern of not following the agreement.

Customer
Ok thank you!
