My ex partner has a view of the world that circulates around her. She is headstrong and in her mind she is always right.
My new partner was nothing to do with the break up of our relationship. It was my ex's behaviour and her drinking.
My ex is some years younger than me, and my partner is 5 years older than I am and has an 18 year old son. She is wise and mature. My ex resents that and is determined to do all she can to cause me problems, believing in her own mind that she has done nothing wrong as she wishes to live her life as if she was a teenager. Not something one can do with the responsibility of an 8 year old son.
I have little spare money, though I own my house on a mortgage. My parents have set my ex up in a rented house which she is happy with. I have allowed her to take all my furniture, electrical kit and soft furnishings to allow her just to go. However she will resist me seeing my son if my Partner is present, even at my parents' home. I cannot burden my parents further.
My ex has "palmed" my son off to unsuitable people and even had him sitting in the staff room at her works, a branch of "Iceland", which I think is illegal, for hours on end. She left him all night with people who thought they would only have him for a couple of hours whilst she has gone drinking. She prevented my own parents from seeing my son for 6 years or seeing his three cousins as she did not want him to be "brought up" like them. My father is a retired very senior police officer and my mother is a retired child special needs carer and are good people. Frankly they have had enough of this woman's bad behaviour.
My ex acts as if she is crazy and defames me as often as she can, she is verbose and aggressive. Her desire to prevent my new partner being part of my son's life is based purely upon spite. Her mothering skills are very poor and I want to obtain some sort of Contact Order to ensure my son's well-being. I am not bothered by things like the CSA, I am more than happy to support my son but he needs the support and love of his extended family, not being shut up in a staff room for hours when he could be out developing as a child.
The objection my ex has to my partner is simply - she is my partner.
