Hi and thanks for reading, Issue 1: I feel I am dealing with an issue of medical neglect from my ex-husband. It is not life threatening, so I doubt there is a case. The mixture of routinely exposing our child to foods he's allergic to (dad was historically in agreement/understanding with that diagnosis), recently not participating in treatment ordered by paediatrician and once that I am aware of treating him with antibiotics not prescribed to him. If he doesn't undergo the medical treatment, he will unlikely succeed to k4. Are these issues possible or recommended to pursue legally under family law? Issue 2: Ex-husband agreed to allow our son to go overseas with me to see my side of the family. This same trip was made 2 years ago in the same way without conflict. I have his approval in writing, and it is written into our parenting plan how it should play out. I arranged a consent form to travel (dad allowing him to leave with details of return) and a statutory declaration outlining the itinerary, insurance, phone numbers and tickets. I keep sending the paperwork for this and the above medical plan. It is all returned and no response. The trip starts on December 7th this year. Should I be going through a lawyer with the time constraint? I don't want to waste time and money for either of us if it's not necessary. Ex-husband says one thing in mediation then uses his time and effort after to "get" to me. I get it. I had a protection order against him after abuse and stalking. He doesn't know where I live, I have a security system, and I've taken away any opportunity to hurt me. So there is no shock that he has now moved onto our child in ways that will unlikely come back to him. I've tried to discuss these subjects and get nothing back. There are many more issues, but these are the two that I believe are affecting our child the most. We have mediation again soon (he refused until the last step) but it will likely go as it did last time, lying and stonewalling.
