After a nasty trial for custody battle for my 15yo son it was decided that my ex wife was to have physical custody of my son and I get limited visitation time. She has never interfered with my visitation time but when visitation is over I get nasty emails about how I parent my child, she emails teachers to keep track of what he does or not when he's me. If I don't do things her way they are wrong. I live in eternal fear of what is she going to bring up next time. Recently she decided, in a moment of anger, that it was the perfect time to show my son the GAL reports as well as police reports and such... She is what I would describe a psycho/sociopath, she's a smooth manipulator and has managed to get everyone on her side, I have always been a nourishing parent to my child, he is my life. As a result of her showing him the reports he wants nothing to do with me and won't come visit me on his appointed time (I read on his facebook mesenger that he even thought about suicide that night), his mother makes no effort to make him comply with the court order. I have done research and this feels like parental alienation. There's more but not enough space...
Sad situation. What is your question? If you feel the need, go see your lawyer again or consult with one or more new ones if you believe there is a chance you could get some relief. Unfortunately, this sort of conduct happens all the time and it is difficult to purer rent.
Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you.
If you didn't have enough space to state everything you thought relevant, maybe you should actually sit down and discuss the situation with the attorney who represented you before. If unhappy with that lawyer, find another one. This forum cannot answer the complicated questions you raise.
If the parenting schedule is not being adhered to, you can file a Petitin for Rule to Show Cause to get your time with the child. If she is held in contempt, she will be ordered to pay at least some of your fees. The child should never have been shown the reports.
