1. OCL is not required to get involved.
2. OCL usually doesn't get involved when the parties consent.
3. The parties may not financially qualify for OCL.
4. OCL over loaded because people use them for nonsense matters all the time.

Because you and the other parent are so conflicted that you have to ask for help doesn't automatically mean they have to help. The other mechanism you should be using if you consented to a clinical evaluation is Section 30 assessments.

A Section 30 runs about 7,500 - 55,000 depending on the complexity of the matter.

The vast majority of OCL reports I have read (which now over 200) are all useless for the most part and most of the "evidence" can be demonstrated in the affidavits and nonsense already in the continuing record. Only about 1% of them actually have a properly written clinical component.

Good Luck!
