Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello. Listen to your attorney and stop communicating with CPS -- that's what you hired her for! If she is unable to work something out with them in order for you to see the private counselor then discuss with her actually going to a court hearing on it if you feel confidently that the judge will throw the matter out. You should, however, stay on your attorney to make sure that she is communicating with CPS (call her once a week until you get some kind of affirmative result from her). Sometimes lawyers will have so much going on, and you do not want these issues to fall by the way-side with the lawyer while you are waiting for an appropriate resolution.
