Yes. That's why judges are reluctant to grant joint custody to parents who have a contentious relationship. It is common for one parent to object to such issues as a way to maintain control over the other parent and to continue the strife that led to the divorce. The child should not suffer.

If the parents disagree the parent who wants to arrange therapy for the child should make certain to obtain recommendations in writing from professionals stating the need and the reasons for therapy. If the other parent still disagrees it would help to discuss the issue with your attorney. If that's not possible then the parent who wants to arrange therapy should go ahead and if the other parent takes the matter to court the recommendations can be used as evidence.

On the other hand, the parent who wants to arrange therapy could take the issue to court for a ruling before scheduling the counseling.

What if they disagree about the child being in therapy?

If they have joint custody they will need to take the matter to court. However, at the same time the parent who is preventing the therapy from happening should realize that a judge is likely to change the custody order if the parents do not get along well enough to agree on important matters that concern the child's health and welfare. The parent who is trying to arrange therapy, if it is warranted, should request sole legal custody so that squabbling with the other parent will not delay needed services for the child.If they have joint custody they will need to take the matter to court.

Can a joint custody parent change the enrollment a child from one school to another without the other parents consent?

There are two types of custody: legal and physical. The parent with legal custody has the right to choose which school the child attends. If both parents share legal custody then the decision cannot be made by one parent. Both must agree. That is why joint custody only works well when parents have a congenial relationship.There are two types of custody: legal and physical.
