Can my son, recently estranged from his wife, take his four-year-old daughter to a Forensic Psychologist? The child is being used as a means to hurt my son, by a mother who didn't appear to want the child until the separation. My son has been her primary care giver from birth, but is now being totally restricted from seeing her, but does get a few hours on a Wednesday. A friend heard on a talkback show that a forensic psychologist can hasten the family law court hearing, but my son thinks this could be used against him by the mother if he takes her without the mother's permission. She will never agree, as she knows she will lose out here ( custody of children). Thanks.
