I have already recieved, other information I needed, but below is the situation:
My 17 (4 months from 18) year old left our house over a month ago over an arguement over grades. While leaving, he punched a hole through my front door. My two younger daughters watched, my husband was not home. I never kicked him out, he left willingly. I have full custody, but my son has recently touched base with my ex husband after 8 years. Over the weeks the words get harsher and harsher. Threats of law suits and police, when Im currectly unemployed, own nothing but my kids and have no fear of police as Ive done nothing wrong. I have all the communications between us and the door with the hole. He's wanting to come today to get his things, which Im fine with, but I dont want him back in my house because of the anger and aggression. I will box all of his things and place in atrium area of our house. He's threatening to bring the police and Im not sure why, what purpose would that serve and what can I do to protect myself?
