Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Sadly the obtaining of a restraining order is a tactic of low life attorneys who advise their clients this gets them an advantage in spousal support
and child custody
matters. It does nothing most times other than hurt the child.
The restraining order is good until vacated by the court and the court should seek to hold a hearing on an ex parte motion within 14 days "or as soon as practicable," which means a reasonable time from issuance of the order.
If you have given one evaluation, she has no right to insist on another and as such you need to file a motion in court to have the court accept the evaluation that you have submitted. Your daughter is also at the age where the Texas court will consider the testimony of the child and the wishes of the child in a custody matter. The wishes of the child can be considered by the court as long as they are not the sole deciding factor of the court in determining what is in the best interests of the child.
You need to file a subpoena for the child to testify in the custody hearing and ask the court to consider her wishes. Also, you need to file a motion to accept the psychological evaluation as submitted and get the court to force your ex to accept what you have already provided.
If at all possible, since the court keeps making you deal with her attorney and the attorney seems to be playing you, I would suggest considering getting your own attorney involved to protect you from the low life your ex is using who would have her stoop this low to interfere with the relationship between yo and your child
