The mother of my child and I split up 6 years ago and she is constantly texting me with nasty comments, ive been called a "disgrace" a "bad father" and alot worse, I have asked her to stop with the abuse and only contact me if its about my son's welfare but this is just ignored. In May this year I was diagnosed with severe depression and I am currently on medication and awaiting DBT. She has sent me texts saying that if she doesnt get to speak to my son when she calls she will call the police and ask them to come and collect him as she claims I am mentally unstable even though I had to provide her with a letter from my doctor stating that I am not a risk to anyone or myself. My son has started picking up words from other kids in school, words like "buttcrack and Gayboy" obviosuly I tell him off when I hear him say it. However, if she hears it then I get abusive texts blaming me for my 6 yr olds behaviour. The weekend just gone my son was in tears talking to me saying that her new partner "picks him up and throws him on his bed" for bad behaviour and that he has been driving at 100 MPH. When I have asked her about this she just says she wont get into it. I have backed up all text messages and you can clearly see the abuse. I am worried about my sons welfare and really peed off about the constant abuse, what can I do about it
I do have PR as I am named on his birth certificate no court orders in place at the moment
What are my options about the constant abusive text messages and also my concerns over my sons welfare. Its not right that her partner is throwing my son about, smacking him and driving at 100 mph with him in the car.
Normally three or four times a week. I back them all up so can easily provide evidence
he stays with me alternate weekends, i collect him from school on the friday and drop him off on the monday.
Yes she has stopped contact in the past and she has said that if i took her to court she will request that i am assessed for my mental health despite me arranging for her to receive a letter from my consultant doctor confirming that I am not a risk to either myself or anybody else. She always threatens to stop contact still especially if she doesnt get her own way.
She demanded that I give her my son's passport, which I paid for she said that if I dont then she will stop me having him.
I do get extra time during school holidays when it suits her. I have never had him on Christmas morning and even though she drives and her mother and employer are literally five minutes away she will expect that I travel 7-8 miles each way to collect my son from her home or she stops me from having him.
This whole situation is causing distress and worry about what is coming next
Basically she said if I don't give her the passport she will stop contact with my son. I paid for the passport as she refused to do so. My son and I visit my brother in Spain every summer but she has got it in her head that the passport should remain with the main carer
