Can I file something in probate court for lying?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Weymouth, MA

My daughter went to the eye doctors with my ex, and he has been stating since she went she needs to wear glasses full time however I called the optometrist and its only for school & homework. He's harassed me regarding this for 2 months and is trying to make me use them full time. I am not sure what can be done if anything but this guy lies constantly and I feel like I finally have a ground to stand on? Any idea how to file? Thank you very much I'm a single mom and this site is very helpful!

    Answered . How is he "trying to make you use them full time?" I would get a letter from the dr. and send it to your ex and to the school that the eyeglasses are for school and homework only. If the doctor suggests that using them full time would cause damage to your daughter's eyes, then you can file something in court. Some parents choose to let their children wear eyeglasses full time to minimize the possiblity of loss!

    This is not legal advice until I am retained and have reviewed all facts about your situation.

    Answered . You really have no basis for a lawsuit. I agree with Attorney Carpenter that you should obtain a letter from the optometrist as to what he recommends for usage of your daughter's glasses. Send a copy to your former spouse, and keep one yourself. You can choose to ignore his requests that your child wear them full-time, and not engage in the back and forth. He has no ability to "make" you have your daughter wear them full-time, particularly if you are following the guidelines of the eye doctor. The less you engage with him, the less opportunity there will be for conflict. Keep communication, civil, business-like and child focused. Good luck.
