A reader wrote that my description of the court orders is confusing. Comm. Irwin Joseph did not issue any new orders to us in court last week. What he did was to give us copies of an order that he issued to Elizabeth Lee back in January. That order was for Ms. Lee to do a child custody evaluation. She wrote to the court that she was unable to do it.
I don't know he didn't give us copies of the order back in January. Maybe it was an oversight on the part of a clerk, I don't know. The order is now obsolete, as Ms. Lee is not going to do it.
So why was Comm. Joseph giving us copies of the order on Friday? Because he was urging us to find another psychologist. If my ex-wife and I were to find and agree on another psychologist, then presumably Comm. Joseph would issue another order with that shrink's name on it. We were getting a copy of the previous order so that we can tell the new shrink what he would be doing.
I have tried calling some psychologists, but Comm. Joseph's wishes are still hopelessly ambiguous. My ex-wife and I will probably have to go back to him for another order.
