CFI appointment
« on: Mar 30, 2006, 05:15:00 PM »
Dear Soc,
My daughter and her child's BF have temp. orders and it's time to settle up the permanent orders for their 20 month-old. It's been a long, expensive legal battle. Now the BF has filed a motion for the appointment of a Child and Family Investigator, and this was ordered by the court. He was ordered to pay 75% of the cost, and doesn't like the CFI the court appointed.

This CFI is very expensive and is not able to begin work on the evaluation until the end of next month, which means it won't be possible for him to complete the evaluation within the court's 45 day allowance.

My daughter's attorney asked the BF's attorney to agree to an extension, but they refused. The BF wants another CFI of his choosing to be assigned.

What can my daughter's attorney do to keep the original CFI assignment?

What could the BF's attorney do to get the order changed?

Ask the court to extend the hearing date on grounds that the CFI won't be done with the eval under the present timeline.

See above.
