Typically, if you are court-ordered to attend therapy in a custody/visitation matter, the issue of how the court is to obtain access to your records, if at all, is addressed in the court order itself. Your therapist has a duty to maintain your confidentiality unless you provide a release. This may be a situation to discuss in more detail with a family law attorney, so that she/he can review the court order, gather more information and/or pleadings, and advise you further.
