Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
How old is your son? How is he being manipulative and controlling? What contact does he have?
My view is that direct contact could be stopped on the basis of the above concerns (primarily the arrest and allegations), and that you can continue to allow phone calls but state that these will be monitored due to the concerns about his presentation and the content of the recent calls.
If he strays into harmful territory then terminate the call.
I would also suggest that you advise him that he may need to apply to court for contact to be reinstated as you feel it needs professional input and guidance given your concerns.
I hope this assists?
If you have sufficient concerns, unless there is a court order in place (which I understand there is not) then you are operating within the law if you suspend contact.
I hope that assists.
If you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I will remain available for any follow-up questions, should you have them.
