I did get half of that $100 and the court took the other half. My wife and I both realize that there can be no grey areas overlooked, because his mother will be on the warpath at this point. Our defenses are up, and we are carefully watching every legal detail so that we do not leave ourselves vulnerable.
My wife has been reading a book about PAS, parental alienation syndrome, and my son sadly is the poster child for this. He exhibits every symptom, and his mother does nearly everything that is described in the book. The problem is that courts do NOT take this sort of thing very seriously. We are thankful for the small victory that we have had, but unfortunately there is alot going on that my son will not share with us. We have family counseling sessions when he is at our home, perhaps they will yield some answers. Thanks for all of the support here!

A chainsaw, acid proof tub from the container store and a couple gallons of acid are MUCH cheaper then a lawyer and court.

BADS197 - That is horrible advice! Very true, final, and much better than dealing with lying, psycho, egomaniac spawn from hell. (And that is just the lawyers).

The Pol - Just remember you are in a war not of your making, and your son has become the "weapon of mass destruction" to be used against you at all cost. Hopefully you can keep him engaged with open lines of communication and in time he will understand. I was 8 years old when my parents divorced and they refused to use us kids as weapons and that was tough enough. However I have seen it many times with friends as kids as well as adults and there are no winners ever.

Best of luck, this is a very *crummy* situation. I had better words but I don't want to get banned.

I'm glad to hear it worked out and some kind of justice was doled out. Man, I can't ever imagine having to deal with that kind of crap. It sounds like you're doing everything right by your son and doing everything you can to maintain a sense of normalcy for his sake. Remember to document every little thing she does, and contact the authorities whenever necessary. It sucks to have to do it, but the more official documentation there is, the easier your job will be in the long run if you decide to take things further. Best of luck to you.

Movie myth. Everyone knows you use a caustic solution to dissolve meat and fats.

On a serious note; Why didn't the police enforce the court order? Once your wife produced it, they should have told your ex to stand aside or be arrested for custodial interference.

Apparently they cannot in Indiana, they said that only the court can enforce it. They tried to mediate a solution, but failed, my sons mom tried to say that my wife "escalated" the disagreement by calling the police. I was like, no... listen to the audio tape, it was all very calm, the police were called to mediate a solution when it was clear that my wife and my sons mom were not getting anywhere. Then his mother said that we AGREED to not take him, and do it another day when I was home... I was like, LIAR... if we AGREED to it, why am I here, driving 12 hours to take you to court? HELLOOO? She is horrible at lying, that is why we record EVERYTHING.
