Q: Can I press charges on my ex MIL for getting my phone blacklisted because I won’t let her see my child?
I left my narcissistic exboyfriend. His mom has always had a vendetta against me. If she doesn’t get her way , or I withstand my boundaries when she tries to control me, she threatens me with cps, cutting my service off (which I told her to so she couldn’t hold it over my head anymore), and stupid arguments she starts. This last time, my phone is connected to her account as she used to pay for my service (I never asked her to, her son broke my phone so she paid my service for about a year) she reported my phone (that I paid for in full myself last year) as stolen and got my phone blacklisted. She refuses to take my phone off of her account and does all this because I won’t let her see my child. I want to make a report and press charges in every way I can, but I don’t want her to retaliate and flip the story to me being the aggressor and bad guy. She manipulates my child’s father very well and isn’t a good mom to him and I’m scared she will convince him to take my baby from me.
