Hi, my ex and myself work for the same company, we seperated

Customer Question

Hi, my ex and myself work for the same company, we seperated 2 years 7 months ago after 20 years together, we have a 8 year old son. He has been with someone 10 days after we seperated and remains with that person. I met someone through work a year ago, he met my son in feb and all has been great, my ex is very controlling so we keep as much from his as possible. I am planning to move myself and my son 100 miles away to start a new family home with my new partner and his 3 boys,, I will be giving up work to look after my son rather than work full time. My ex told me that he traced my new partners car to a company so we allowed him to think this as he has been causing me so much grief through texts and emails at home and at work, I did not want my new partner caught up in this, it has got so bad I am of work with depression at the moment, he has now done some more digging and found out my new partner works for the same company (worried he is going to cause him issues) and he has told me that my new partner was of with stress (actually he was off with a cancer scare) my employers did not know about my plan move and leaving but he has told everyone, and now I am worried about what he can do to my new partner, he is saying we are being dishonest any may stop the move, can I do anything, I am so emotionally drained by all of this, all I want is a lovely family home with my son.... thanks

Hi Claire


He has him wed from school to sleep, Sun from 4pm to sleep one week, the 2nd week wed from school to sleep, Fri from school to sleep and he drops back to me Sat at 8am and Sat from 6pm to sleep...


When we move it will be every other weekend from 6pm Friday till 6pm Sunday I believe much better quality time and we have agreed we will drop my son to him so he does not have to drive and collect from him as well...
