Desperately Seeking Advice. Seems very UNJUST to me!!!
My boyfriend and I were childhood sweethearts. At age 16, my father retired from the service and my family moved to my father hometown. That was 25 years ago and with the help of a social network my childhood crush and I reunited. We dated(again) for a year and now live together. Nice story, eh? Then the reality hit!!! We both have children from a previous. The father of my children and my boyfriend are co-parenting perfectly. However, not the case when it comes to the wifey. Here's where I DESPERATELY need advise.
My boyfriend's son, age 6 lives with us and has every other weekend with the mother. Our day is pretty typical of most American families. We eat dinner around 6:00 pm, homework, playtime, bath and bedtime. My boyfriend son's mother will call at dinnertime non-stop (hang up, dial, hang up, so on)until the phone is answered. This is sometimes 20 times in a row. We have asked her to please call anytime after school upto dinnertime and/or 7:30 after dinner and homework is finished. This is always received with profanity and fuels her to continue to call even more excessivly. She'll call non-stop for hours. She has even had her 90 yr old former mother-in-law(from her 1st marriage) to call and leave messages on the answering machine calling me "not so nice names" for my children to hear. We have now resorted to turning off the ringer and having her son call his mother each night right before bedtime. I feel her phone calls are a form of harrasment and thinking about filing a complaint with my local police department, but my boyfriend's attorney says she has a right to call as many times as she likes to talk to her son. How about my childrens rights to be able to eat and do homework in peace and not be constantly disrupted with excessive ringing of the phone?? Do I have any rights??? PLEASE ADVISE!!!
