should I let my daughter talk in court?

Hi,I'm in Va.I have posted on here numerous times about my step-son and also have talked about my own daughter.Next month I am going to court with my girl's dad because he isn't paying her bills which is court ordered(Getting ready to be turned over to coll.agency,in my name),i have been paying these myself to prevent coll.action by the doctors office,her dad has paid $20.00 on this bill since Nov.2000.his work is suppossed to send me the child support checks on the day he is paid but they are always 1-2 weeks late.Her dad is cussing her and calling her names,stupid,childish,saying she is just like me and he is tired of her not living up to his last name and expectations.He is telling her bad things about me and my husband,which she knows are a bunch of lies.We are not abusive,physically or mentally to her and we don't fight in front of her or cuss around her or at her,but he is trying to tell her that we do all of these things but she just doesn't realize it because I have her brainwashed,she is 11yrs.old and I think she would be able to tell if there was a problem here at home.he tells her the C/S he gives me pays all my bills at my house and he shouldn't have to give me any money for her since she doesn't live with him and it is taking money away from his house and new family.my daughter and I are scared because he has threatened to ask for custody and then said he would tell the judge to put the visitaion to where she calls him when she wants to see him,other then that he doesn't get regular visits,I think he is up to something and I guess I'll eventually find out what it is.This "man"has cussed me infront of her and put me down also to her,his brother cussed me on the phone and his sister who supp. is wanting to help protect her because she knows how her bro. is and that he is an alcoholic&drug user doesn't want to go into court.Someone PLEASE give me some advice on how to present this to the judge,her father needs help(prof.)and my girl wants to talk to the judge about everything he is doing and saying to her and me but should I allow it?I don't want her hurt mentally anymore then she already is.Sorry this is so long but I had alot to say and haven't been able to get on here in a about a week.
