My children who are 8 & 15 do not want to see their father, they haven’t seen him or spoken with him in 2.5 years, however, a judge is forcing them to go to counselling with him so that way he can see them. When my 8 year old used to speak with him he would have anxiety attacks that would last months (nightmares, bed wetting, stuttering, nail biting etc.), my 15 year old gets very angry. He didn’t participate much when he lived with us, and now all of a sudden he misses them. He had a secret family else where so there is allot of resentment, and as long as my children have no contact their mental health is good. They also have a male figure in their life now which they both look at as their dad, as he gives them so much more then what their birth father ever did! SO HOW DO I PROTECT MY CHILDREN FROM THE COURTS WRONG CHOICE ABOUT FORCING COUNSELLING DOWN THEIR THROATS? I only have a few months to stop this! Thank you

    Answer: As a general comment, Judge’s Orders must be followed, of course. If a person disagrees with a Judge’s Order one can seek to appeal or vary it, within the prescribed timelines, as may be appropriate based on the facts of the case.

    You have ongoing Court. I can provide you with an exact analysis based on your facts, however that means that I need to read both the existing Court Order(s) and Court material (Application, Answer, Motion material, if any, etc.). I also need to know if by “counselling” you mean an actual counselor, or the Office of the Children’s Lawyer. I thus suggest that you call me for a free consultation.
