Parent of primary residence
I am the parent of primary residence for my son Kenneth in New Jersey. Recently his mother and my ex-wife are insisting that I run every move through her before I make a decision. Is it necessary for me to get her approval before I even take my son to the doctor? Or to have him treated if he is ill?

Re: Parent of primary residence
You should advise the mother of the general state of your child's health. You should consult with you child's mother before deciding on any treatment which is more than routine, such as surgery. MedicaL attention for minor ailments does not require consultation prior to the medical attention but you should keep the mother advised of such medical attention. Certainly certain situations do not lend themselves to prior consultation.
