I would file a new emergency motion with the court asking for a temporary interim order for visitation with the child while the court makes its decision. Tell the story just as you told it here. Don't let her lawyer tell you what to do or what your options are. Be sure you follow all the rules regarding keeping her lawyer informed of your motion and serving the lawyer with all your pleadings.

Good luck.
