    Depends on what is said, if it is a threat yes it could. If it is just the standard trash talking you need to develop a thicker skin.

    My name is Stephen R. Cohen and have practiced since 1974. I practice in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. These answers do not create an attorney client relationship. My answers may offend I believe in telling the truth, I use common sense as well as the law. Other state's laws may differ.. There are a lot of really good attorneys on this site, I will do limited appearances which are preparation of court documents it is , less expensive. However generally I believe an attorney is better than none.


  2. It does not necessarily impact visitation, but may (depending on the nature & frequency of the texts) provide a basis for an order of protection. Schedule a consultation with a NYC Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.

  3. If the non custodial parent is truly harassing you, then consult an attorney about an order of protection if the action rises to that level.
