You can’t really bar the grandparents from communicating with the son but you can show they are manipulating him to pursue custody for their agenda, not his. Custody visitation and child support are always modifiable so you need to be able to show that equal time is NOT in the best interests of the child.

1) Let her go and wait to see if she pursues anything against you.

2). File your own petition to establish paternity and custody and seek share parenting.

3). Really depends on whether you want a relationship with the child.
