Going to court tomorrow, a question please
« on: Nov 24, 2003, 05:43:03 AM »
Dear Sir,

We are going to court tomorrow for the bogus charge cp brought against ncp.  We received a call Friday, in route to pick up children from cp for weekend visit, from an GAL that had been appointed by the judge hearing the case tomorrow.  GAL had already talked to school counselor about aledged charge and counselor told him that in her opinion the children were coached.  

GAL requested we bring children by his office before we took them home this past Friday, which we did.  He spoke with ncp and the children separately.  The GAL told ncp that he found no reason for the children to be afraid to visit ncp and that the charges never should have been brought before the court and that he felt like the children were being used as pawns.

What is upsetting us is that Saturday night, youngest child got upset because he was told not to run through the house.  His comment to ncp was, "Dad was right, you are lowlifes!"  He is very confused and showing so many signs of stress and alienation at this point.  My question is:

1.  Can we inform the GAL that cp is practicing parental alienation and interfering with the parent/child relationship?

2.  What is the best way to address our concerns to GAL.

3. Can we call him by phone to express our concerns?


Thank you!

I would let it go. You already have the GAL on your side. This new issue probably won't even come up at the hearing.
