We currently have no final orders in place. Under family law, are we able to have a cognitive ability test (and any other testing deemed needed) without the other parent's permission? The child is really struggling and it's quite evident that there are issues. Processing delays were picked up almost immediately during the child inclusive conference. We've been asking the other parent for quite some time, but have been told either the child is doing well or now because the court process has started that they are doing "extra classes". As far as we are aware, no formal testing has been done.
