Asked by user in Massachusetts.
My daughter’s attorney told the court that my daughter told her that she didn't want to come home, but my daughter has told me that she wants to come home. In court, when I make a statement, the opposing lawyer tells the court reporter to scratch that.
I’m sorry you are going through this difficult time.
Generally speaking, court reporters have an obligation to type every word that is said in court unless both parties agree to go off the record. Next time an incident like you described occurs, make clear that you don’t want to go off the record.
You might also consider contacting the Massachusetts State Bar Lawyer Referral Service to see if you qualify for free legal assistance.
