Me and the father of my 2 daughter ages 1 and 7 seperated 3 months ago he left me for his now girlfriend. I had my issues the first month dealing with being betrayed,I got over it because of my 2 daughter's well we have gone tru mediation and court he didn't agree to the days and I offered an extra day I have tried to be civil and co parent with this man.My issue is his new girlfriend is at every exchanges and gets off the car to stare me down ,I recently found out his girlfriend has been responding to talking parents messages,so I messaged on there said I dont feel comfortable communicating on there nomore i will not nomore,we have mediation again on the 20th of March,But now his girlfriend has decided to come up wit him to hand me the baby and try to provoke me flipping me off and starring me down She has harrased me over text back in Jan I changed my number also. I don't understand what game they are playing But he stated he is recoding and taking pictures of me. SHOULD I BRING THIS UP AT MEDIATION OR PUT A RESTRAINING ORDER FOR HER TO STAY AWAY FROM ME? I'm trying to co parent with the father and he is allowing her to do all this drama intront of my daughter's
Let the mediator know what is going on and request that she not be present at the exchanges because she is stirring up trouble. Further let the mediator know that she is responding on his Talking Parents account which is totally unacceptable. You may want to speak with an experienced family law attorney in your area to assist you in this matter. Good luck.
While these behaviors are not ideal, your response is not ideal, either. Keep using the software. Ignore staring. Laugh it off.
Be calm during the mediation. If you get exercised, they win.
All of Ms. Straus’ responses are intended as useful information, based solely upon the facts stated in the question, and are not to be relied upon as a full or complete legal opinion. They may not be what you wished to hear, they do not create an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Straus has been licensed to practice law in California for 33 years. Ms. Straus regrets that she does not provide follow up free advice via email. She also regrets that blunt responses may be taken as "rude" by those who wished a different opinion. Good luck.
It must be so frustrating for you. They are trying to bait you. Don't take it. Apply for an Order from the court that the Gf not be allowed at any of the exchanges. If you can, bet a lawyer with a heart to help you. Also, be very guarded in what you put online.
