The artwork in the sticker belongs to the artist even if it doesn't have the copyright symbol on the sticker. The better plan of action is to reach out to the seller and see if they own the rights to the artwork or know who does. Feel free to call or email me if I can be of further assistance.

You can ask her, but she doesn't have to agree. Unless there is a provision in your divorce decree regarding social media, either one of you can post whatever you like.

is it legal to completely keep me from even speaking to them?

Ellaretha Coleman answered on Jan 31, 2020

Until you obtain an order of legitimation, you unfortunately have no custodial rights. Therefore, it is legal for mom to cut off all communication. You should seek legal counsel to complete the legitimation process to avoid this continuing or happening in the future.

Sixteen is the age of consent in Georgia too. That said, you should still address it with the police. Nothing will likely come of it, as he will not be arrested for anything unless he comes to Georgia, but there could be other crimes here.

Call a criminal defense attorney.

File a complaint with the police. This is a crime in most states. That should be enough to stop him, but you can always file a restraining order if necessary. Good luck!
