There were 2 years of very clever bullying by way of continuous phone calls and threats, turning up at my place of work and sitting outside, coming around to cause trouble with my partner and sending a friend of his around to beat him up (which didn't actually happen), then this New Year's Day sitting his girlfriend outside my previous living room window in their car while he called in on one of my friends as a pretence just to intimidate me. The police said they know that he causes us problems but until he does it continually over a concentrated amount of time, they can't do anything... even though they know that he has been harassing me. I am not trying to stop contact for him and our son, just live in peace, without him coming to my new home.
My son is 8 years old (9 in May). Most of the incidents were logged with the police, but I don't know how long they keep them on their system.
It was agreed during our Divorce that Max would live with me... his father had not lived in the Marital home since Max was 4 years old due to him working/living abroad and then due to our separation September 2010, with divorce being granted on 9th April 2011.
