Divorce often results in disagreements over the kids—what they’ll wear, when they’re allowed to date and sometimes even what they should eat. While these things are important, what happens when parents disagree over their child’s medical treatment? Everything from routine immunizations to major surgeries can be contested by one parent or the other. If this happens to you, you might need to involve your Mississauga divorce lawyer to ensure your kids receive the medical treatments they need.

Prescribed Medications

If your child has been prescribed medications, he or she needs to take them on time, every time—and failure to do so can result in serious injury or even death. When your ex isn’t on board, your child’s life could be in jeopardy; that’s why it’s so important to parent collaboratively. As the parent of a child on a regular medication, you should let your lawyer know so he or she can add vital information to your parenting plan.

Natural Approaches vs. Conventional Medical Treatments

Sometimes parents disagree on the types of medical treatments their kids receive. One parent may prefer a holistic approach, while the other places trust in modern science—and where do you go from there?

If you’re concerned that your kids’ health is in jeopardy because of the medical care your ex is (or is not) giving them, call your Mississauga divorce lawyer immediately to see if your custody agreement can be changed or if the courts will issue an emergency order.

Disagreements on “Optional” Medical Treatments

One parent may see orthodontic braces as an “optional” medical treatment; another might feel that contact lenses are a luxury. Some parents might feel that mental health services are unnecessary (even when they are very necessary), while others think that a doctor-recommended back brace to treat scoliosis isn’t a must-have.

When you know what’s right for your child, especially if you think you’re in for a fight, there’s no harm in calling your Mississauga divorce lawyer for legal advice on how to proceed.
