That depends upon whether or not she has sole custody or whether there is joint custody. If she has sole custody then she has the right to make the medical decisions without consulting you. If shared custody, then the two of you would have to agree.

I personally share your concerns about Abilify for its potentially devastating (and lethal) side effects. Nothing I have read has cleared it for use with juveniles, either.

You may register your concerns with the court, but I suggest you have your concerns backed up by a medical professional.
