She needs to stop child contact now and have there is no child arrangement order she needs to immediately make an application for a Child arrangement order for the children to live with her.
If this is in the Isle of Man, the procedure is likely to be completely different than on the mainland and the forms are going to be different including the terminology.
We do not have an Isle of Man law lawyer on here.
In respect of the abusive text messages she can apply to court for a Non-Molestation Order to prevent him coming within 100 m of her or messaging her.
As I said, this is based upon UK mainland law and I imagine the provisions in the Isle of Man are very similar but you would need to check with a local lawyer. At least now she knows that it can be done and what can be done and she knows what she is asking for.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
