Here’s my problem, I hope someone can give me some advice! Please?
Ok first I know Mom is on this forum personally I do not care if she reads this as I am fed up with the antics, but I need some answers.
My husband and I split because of Mom’s antics, IE false reports to Child Protective Services. Sheriff’s Department. Phone Harassment, threats to my child, constant questioning of her children, attempted Parental Allienation ect. She admitted to the CPS’s worker that she was jealous of me and did not want me around the children
Do I have an AA claim against her, seeing as her harassment and behavior caused our marriage to end? We felt we could no longer put the children through this and the medical damage it was doing to me.
I have since started babysitting for my stbx’s children, once again Mom has called her county CPS over voluntary MRDD services and used my address and phone number as a contact for Dad. Knowing that we do not live together and I am only babysitting. She also sent the Sheriff’s Department to my neighbors to serve Dad with contempt of Court over voluntary MRDD services. The judge dismissed it, saying the services were not court ordered and a voluntary service. Our county’s CPS office investigated, found no wrong doing on our part and that the services were voluntary. They voiced concerns about Mom to her local CPS and where the initial report was made. Her local CPS has since called me again on her report and the worker screamed at me over the phone that I had to except the services and had no choice. I am not a custodian, I am babysitting, I have no right to say yes to MRDD services or even sign papers.
These services are voluntary, Mom initiated them and even though both parents have equal physical and legal custody she never included Dad in the MRDD services process, he signed nothing. What can I do to make them leave me alone and understand I have nothing to do with it?
Because of Mom’s continued choice of using my address and phone number for CPS and the Sheriff’s department, myself and my neighbors have suffered many visits by each. At the same time my neighbors complained to my landlord and he evicted me for my neighbors being harassed and annoyed, which I found he can do.
Now I have to move my child again(twice in 2 years) because of her harassment. My question is, since she is using these agencies to falsely harass me, and even though I babysit for the children, does my address and phone number still have to be provided to her, or can I request the courts to protect me from further harassment and bar her from knowing my information? Will dad have to take her to court for contempt and modify the order not to include babysitter information? I want to continue watching my step daughters, I love them dearly and would rather they be here with me while Dad works swing shifts then anywhere else. At least then I know for sure they won’t be mistreated by someone who doesn’t know them or how to talk to them. Plus childcare for shifts like his is few and far between and without me, he wouldn’t be able to keep joint custody, Mom knows this.
I just don’t know where to turn anymore.
