Dear Commissioner Joseph:I am glad to see that she sent me and my ex-wife the same notice that she sent to the court. That is as it should be.
Thank you for referring the above case to me for a custody evaluation. After being informed of your referral, I spoke with the parties by phone regarding the evaluation.
I regret to say that I will not perform the evaluation of this case.
Thank you very much for referring this case to me for evaluation. I feel very strongly the compliment that you pay by choosing to recommend my services to the parties, and I regret that I am unable to accommodate you and the parties on this occasion.
Elizabeth K. Lee, Psy.D.
I don't know what Comm. Joseph will do now. He didn't just "recommend" Lee's services, he ordered it. But he never explained the purpose of the evaluation, or what he wanted to get out of it, or what to do if Lee does not do it.
