My son has a girl friend who is not married but has a child

Customer Question

My son has a girl friend who is not married but has a child by an ex boyfriend.
Although he has been paying some maintenance he has been reducing this since being with my son. The boy is now three and his father does have him on occasions through out each month. However, because the boy is talking about my son when he has him. he is becoming very aggressive toward his ex girlfriend and playing mind games with text messages and is now threatening to take her to court to gain full procession of him. I cannot describe the love for her son and his mother is becoming seriously distraught by these remarks and I need advise on a situation like this.
