What exactly do you want to do?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I would like the courts to be aware that I have provided well for my children, my daughter 'Maelena' and I had a great relationship with her, was a great student and Sister until -'Tony/'
'Josh' disagrees and he and is family call her a whore for leaving Baby, but I witnessed that 'Josh' has a violent temper when he does not get his way, which he agrees, but is very intimidating because he is a big guy. I think it is why 'Maelena' left her baby with him wen he got angry because she had again befriended & was working a second job where 'Tony' worked. She gave up several full scholarships to colleges, her grades in high school dropped because she was not eating her lunch, 'Tony' called her during her sleeping hours. She was giving her lunch money to 'Tony' for he & the 'Male Internet Family,''Tony' used my cell phone # XXXXX get credit at a RentaCenter resulting in repeated calls for money owed for stuff he rented. I called Verizon and filed complaint with FCC. I want 'Tony' out of our lives and 'Josh' needs counsel with my Daughter and Family. Plus I need to get some $ paid back to me since now my husband , son & I are struggling to keep our home while Josh and Maelena do not make my Grandson a priority. They spend money on gaming cards, etc., because they are angry at each other, but say they have no money for phone I contracted for them or sometimes food and diapers for baby. I have furnished them with cribs, strollers, clothes, toys, transportation, carseats, etc. 'Josh' threatened to break my f... door down unless I called my daughter while she had her arranged time to bring baby back because I suspended their cell phones without billing until they paid the money they owed me. I love my children and it is emotionally draining to be in he middle of this,Maelena is 20 yrs old, Josh - 23, the baby 14 months. I want a good life for my Grandson,'Junon' is happy with me and he enjoys the time I had him in my care. I want to be able to see my grandson. I have an insurance policy that I pay for him so that he will have some money to use for College or future.
How do I present all of this to the Court to find some resolution?

Sorry - I replied via same page - did not yet ceck my email - I may have not replied correctly- but it is above _ do you need more info - I know it is alot and quite involved - I have been dealing with these issues pertaining to my daughter since se was in 9th grade of High School - because she was 16 when I found out details - the Law has prevented me from protecting my own child that I fear is damaged by this 'Tony' and I may never have the same rappor with my daughter again. Sound like a Patty Hearst Issue?! I have saved loads of documents to show what has occurred over the years. Thanks for reading and looking forward to help.
