I concur with Mr. Alexander, especially if there have been any monitoring or recording of the actual content of the communications coming through the phones. The Revised Code of Washington makes the interception or recording of a private conversation illegal unless all parties to the conversation consent to the recording. See RCW § 9.73.030. Under federal law, it sounds like the mother may have violated the federal wiretap act,, which generally prohibits the interception and disclosure of wire, oral, or electronic communications. See 18 USC § 2511.
Verizon may be willing to help you out with a technical fix, especially if you have any supporting evidence of the claim that the system was "hacked." The first remedy is, as Mr. Alexander suggested, change your passwords and other access credentials and DO NOT give them out to anyone.
