Hi, I'm dealing with bipolar here, too. Only it's my baby's father. Currently we have started a custody evaluation which includes psychological evals for both parties, too. It has been a very very difficult journey, and he's said everything and anything that could be said (fact or fiction) against a person in his affidavits and I've also spent a HUGE amount of money on the case. It's taken its toll emotionally, financially, physically, and just about in every way possible.
So hopefully the psych stuff will start soon. He's been institutionalized but he's lied about it before and he will lie about it again. My child's life now depends on a new psych eval that includes an MMPI and a psychologist interview. He's court ordered to sign medical releases but I doubt he will. He'll just say he's never been to a hospital and they can't do anything about it. Anyway, good luck and everything. Please post how things go.
