As Bobbi Kristina Brown remains on a ventilator in a medically-induced coma, her partner Nick Gordon has been trying to see her, his lawyers tell ET.

"Nick has been trying, privately, to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively," Gordon's attorneys Randall M. Kessler and Joe S. Habachy tell ET on behalf of their client. "He has respected the family's wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation. But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted."

NEWS: Bobbi Kristina Brown's Family Will Keep Her on Ventilator

Bobbi Kristina's aunt Pat Houston has a protective order keeping Gordon away from her immediate family.

Gordon, 25, and the 21-year-old Bobbi Kristina -- who never legally married, contrary to early reports -- were reportedly having trouble in their relationship leading up to her hospitalization. Gordon and a friend Maxwell Lomas reportedly found Bobbi Kristina unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31.

Gordon was taken in by Bobbi Kristina's late mother Whitney Houston when he was 12 years old after his biological mom declared that she could no longer care for him. Although Whitney never legally adopted Gordon, she raised him like a son and he grew up alongside Bobbi Kristina like siblings.

NEWS: Are Police Looking at Nick Gordon After Bobbi Kristina Hospitalization?

On Feb. 15, Gordon revealed a fresh tattoo on his left arm in Bobbi Kristina's honor.

Legally, the final decision is up to Bobbi Kristina's father Bobby Brown and a source told ET that he was the most upbeat that they've heard him sound in a while -- and gave no indication that he's even thinking of removing his daughter from life support.
