I recently filed for child support. My son is 11 years old. and the father has not been around since he was born. Right after I filed, he countered with a custody/visitation case. They are in reunification therapy and my son does not want to attend. He wants nothing to do with his dad. He tells me all the time that his father blames me for not seeing him. My son does not want to know his dad. He says the he feels pressure by the counselor and his dad to move forward in a relationship. This is taking a big toll on my son and he is failing out of school and depressed and is going to start counseling soon due to this. Can he have his counselor present during therapy sessions. What age does my son have a say in whether he want to get to know him.
