Phone Status Conference. 10:07 a.m.
Petitioner appears by phone with counsel.
Respondent does not appear by phone. What? He asked for this hearing. Why is he not here? Respondent counsel appears in person.
Matter comes before the court on Respondent motion to clarify parenting time. This is such a waste of time; he just needs to write the damn letter and this will all be over with.
Updates provided to the court. He has spent more time trying to get out of writing the damn thing than it would have taken him just to do it. Oh God, they’re asking for a new therapist. Someone who won’t make him write the letter.
The court orders no change in therapist. The judge agrees that would be detrimental to the child, my child. The one he hurt.
Order Respondent to comply with the recommendations of therapist and proceed accordingly. The judge says we should trust the therapist if she says that the letter is an important part of reunification. I breathe a sigh of relief.
No additional matters are pending before the court at this time.
Adjourned. 10:15 a.m.
