Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer.
You will have to tell the father, preferably via your solicitor, to tell his wife to back off or you will go to court for a residence order and a restriction on his contact to the effect that she can’t be present. It’s difficult with teenagers but that is what you should do in the first instance. Unfortunate the older a child is the more a court will follow the child’s wishes but if she has undermined your position as mother a court would certainly take that into account in the child’s overall best interests.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
