We have joint legal custody of our 3 boys, they do live primarily with their mother but in the separation agreement is worded as “joint legal”.
Recently the mother put the youngest child (age 9) on ADD meds. She did this with out consulting the father and letting him know that he was going to be put on these meds, much less the monthly cost we would incur.
My question is this: Since joint legal custody reads as “Joint legal custody allows for joint decision making with each parent having an equal voice concerning the child’s best interests.” and we were not notified or consulted in this decision and furthermore do not agree with him being on these meds do we have a right to disagree & not pay the co-pay she is demanding of us?
Thank you for your time & we appreciate your reply!
