What can I do if my ex-wife refuses to communicate with me via text or email?

I have learned that I can only communicate with my ex-wife via text or email to make sure that everything is documented. There have been several times where she refuses to talk to me using these methods. I do not feel comfortable talking to her in person or on the phone where nothing is recorded or documented. I even gave her the option to talk over the phone if the call was recorded but she refused to be recorded. What can I do in this case?

If your case is still on going you can get an order requiring communications through myfamilywizzard.com. If not, look in your final judgment and see of there is anything about communication between the parties.

I would follow the terms of your final judgment regarding communication with your spouse. If it is not working or not effective, you can file the appropriate motion or supplemental petition with the Court. I would document the times when she is not responding to you and keep track of the text messages and emails.
