My lawyer advised me to call DSS regarding my husbands admission on recording that he is using corporeal punishment on my son despite court orders. He also says to withhold visistation. Can I withhold visitation or do I need to see what DSS has to say about my evidence first? Can he call the police if I withhold? I don’t want to put my son through a nasty confrontation.
Also, can I legally record conversations between my son and his father? Now he knows these are always on speaker phone, and I am practically a part of the conversation because my son often needs prompted to move the conversation along. Yet he could deny this in court. I can tell that he is steering conversations with my son in certain ways to make himself look good and I can practically always tell which ones are meant to try and get a court recording. He drills my son for dirt on what I might have not done perfectly that day-like too much TV time, too much junk food, not enough outside time, you name it. I know HE can record them, but I don’t suppose I can. There was one conversation I wish I had where my son asked him to stop popping him too much.
