Dr. Edward J Connor Psy D
"Our intent is to be sure that no factual information is inaccurate" -Dr. Edward J Connor 3/26/08
Dr. Edward J Connor Psy D performed a child custody evaluation in my divorce. Dr. Connor told Judge Carl H Taul that his original evaluation report contained “numerous errors and oversights.” When I requested a copy of Dr. Connor’s case file to see how there could be “numerous errors and oversights” in something as important as a child custody evaluation, Dr. Connor went on the offensive. You will be able to see how Dr. Connor began to consider me to be a “potentially dangerous” person after I began challenging Dr. Connor about the conflicting reasons as to why he wouldn’t release the case file as indicated by his contract. The sad thing is, Dr. Edward J Connor will run to the Court to try to harm me for telling my story. If Dr. Connor would have been honest, none of this would have been necessary.
