my daughters father and step mother are refusing to give any information on myself or my family to doctors or any other educational, medical or legal persons and are now her step mother is taking her out of therapy and away from her doctor to switch to who they say is "a person she can talk to in another county that will give her the real medicine that she needs if she really needs it". all of this was decided just after they were served with papers from the courts about our upcoming hearing for me to get back visitation and joint custody. i still have my rights and they are putting her step mother down on the paperwork as her biological mother. i am scared that this is going to mess up her medicine and i am wondering if it is even legal for them to do that and how to go about dealing with this situation. my daughter has ADD and has been in counseling for a very long time now and she is only 10yrs old... what can i do... would this be an issue for DCS.

it is illegal for hr to put herself down as the Biological mother. She only has the legal right to put her name on documents as her mother, IF SHE Adopted Her.If not, then at your next court hearing on 10/6/17 you should inform the judge that she is putting her name on documents as her biological mother.
You need to stress to the judge that you are seeking to establish custody and that they are not giving her the proper medicine and treatment for her ADD. That is an issue for DCS and you can file a report to establish a record for your next hearing.I hope this clarifies. Please don't forget to rate the question with stars for credit and tracking so that I will receive payment for assisting you with your question.
