Raeford, NC asked in Family Law, Child Custody and Libel & Slander for North Carolina

Q: Can we stop my husbands ex from blackmailing him to get back with her by allowing him to see the kids she took?

She has this kid asking why he doesn’t want to be there with him, when he is moving in with them. The child has bad cerebral palsy and had no idea my husband existed. She had her husband that she married the day she got divorced adopt them. The situation almost killed him before and now she is also trying to ruin my family. She has slandered us to my ex to try and help him get custody of my kids. She says it is about the kids but it has to just be the two of them and the kids. She is saying that calls are ok but to get anymore he has to be willing to abide by her demands. This is insane!!!!!

A: The facts you have presented make no sense. If the kid has cerebral palsy to the point he had no idea your husband exists, then how is he no questioning why he doesn't want to be there and more importantly how is she demanding anything if the child has been adopted - how is this any of your or your husbands concern now? It sounds very much to me like this is something you just need to cut out of your life altogether and ignore - if she intrudes on your life, have her arrested for some form of harassment and / or take out a restraining order.
