You might check and see if there are sliding scale counseling services in your area. They are based off of the income of the person attending.
You could then go back to the court and request a change in the counselor due to financial reasons - be able to show the difference in costs.
The judge ordered the counseling sessions for a reason and they normally don't like it when their orders are not followed. So not attending the sessions will like end up just ticking the judge off and you don't want that.
But...MOST judges can understand when the expense is the ONLY reason that you are not able to attend. By showing that you are willing.....locating the new counselor.....you might pull it off.
Here is something FUNNY!!!!!!!!!
Do you remember that first kiss? The way that your toes curled? Those dreamy eyes?
You just couldn’t stop thinking about them? Seemed like forever every time that you were apart?
That’s the same “jerk” and “SOB” that you are here whining about now!!!!!
