I actually want to know if the legal service can step aside to allow a doctor to examine him. It is his mental state that I am concerned about. They do not have his history, have not lived with his condition and have little or no knowledge on clinical depression.
The courts will grant a divorce because of unreasonable behaviour by me... which I cannot defend and there is no point as I do not have the money and therefore the judge will not be interested.
Most people with mental health issues end up lonely and worse off, because they will not tell about their problems.
His doctor has pleaded with me to get him to go in but he will not even talk to me. I have let his solicitor know the doctor wants to see him, but he will take no notice.
I have written to the health minister and he has put me in touch with the justice department.. I really am very concerned, he has spent all the money and now he is getting involved with the activities of his sons.
thank you for that reply, I will give solicitor info to Doctor. I have written to the department of justice.
There are many programmes on television and institutions like Mind and Time to change who advocate that we understand mental illness. Many marriages to those with mental health problems fail but it is usually the partner who instigates, whereas I, after deep thought want to protect mine and my husband and no one is really interested. Both my and his solicitor are not interested at all. the failings of compassion and understanding may well result in this man, my husband eventually taking his own life or dying a sad and lonely life. Because of this I cannot stay silent.
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX I word the info to his doctor? is there any protocol? Are there any acts or laws I should cite?
should I tell his doctor what is going on i.e. indicate that I think he has impaired judgement. If I just give the doctor his solicitors address he will wonder why.
