File a petition to have the current custodial order amended to sole custody or file a new petition for sole custodial rights. Please be advised that judges are very reluctant to grant sole custody except in cases where it has been proven that a parent is neglectful or abusive or the child's welfare is otherwise being jeopardized.

Does the parent with only visitations have to be notified that the child will go to therapy?

If the parent with visitation rights has joint legal custody they have the right to participate in the decision to seek and schedule therapy for the child. A parent with sole legal custody has the right to arrange therapy for the child without the consent of the non-custodial parent. The custodial parent should inform the NC parent of the therapy and involve them if the NC parent is willing to help especially when the NC parent is taking a positive parental interest and role in the child's life. However, the parent with sole legal custody has the sole right to make decisions that involve the child. Divorce is often an adversarial situation and judges often do not award joint legal custody if the parents do not have a congenial relationship. That is to avoid a situation where one parent interferes with the needs of the child because they disagree with the custodial parent's decisions.
