Answer to 1 is no. The latest consent order is unsupervised
Answer 3 - The ex wife has is badmouthing me for 17 months since i left the house. The ex is not communicating with me at all. I only see her at a facilitator once a month. My 13 year old girl doesnt talk to me and told my family she hates her father. My 10 year old sees me with my parents for 3 hours a week because she is comfortable with that. But that is ending in 2 weeks. My parents will be out of the picture as it says in the consent order.
Can i file a lawsuit for parental alienation in New Jersey. If so how do i do that? Typically, you file a Motion in the family court you are already in - a Motion for XYZ that you want, due to the fact that the other parent is engaging in Parental Alienation. The XYZ could be 1) Order prohibiting/ceasing all actions of parental alienation including but not limited to ABC and/or 2) Order holding ex in contempt for committing campaign of Parental Alienation for 16+ months such that the great relationship prior to 16 months ago is not deteriorated to a 13 year old that says she hates dad, and an older child that will not call, text or otherwise communicate at all - unlike before the campaign began 3) Order changing custody because ex is either unwilling or unable to use judgement and parental care that would cease Parental Alienation, foster the other parent/child relationship, allow for reasonable visitation, etc.
I am suffering mental and physical abuse If you are being beaten (you say physical abuse) - you need to call 911 or the police department, depending on the situation.
Optional Information: Country relating to Question: United StatesState (if USA): New JerseyWhat have you tried so far?: I have joint custody per consent order but i only see one child 3 hours a week with my parents and the ex and the older child Why does the older child have an aversion to you, specifically. What does he/she 'know' or believe to know?
have not spoken or texted or emailed me in 16 months. OK, it sounds like your Order left the parenting plan (time schedule) open for you two to decide? Consider: Since that is not working, a filing of a motion to set a schedule - explain how she is only allowing 3 hours a week and that other time appears to be replete with parental alienation actions - and be specific - how do you know that, do you have witnesses, etc.
The Facilitator cannot get the job done Clearly. Are you 'required' to use her?
Answer to 1 is no. The latest consent order is unsupervised OK, so you have been acquiescing to someone's request for only 3 hours and only with grandparents. Consider not bending over so kindly.
Answer 3 - The ex wife has is badmouthing me for 17 months since i left the house. Do you have evidence of that? Or are you presuming that because the child(ren) are behaving like they do not wish to be with your or interact with you?
The ex is not communicating with me at all. OK, so I know she hasn't admitted to Parental Alienation. So you must review (or have your attorney do so): Can you tell me what evidence you plan on producing regarding PA. It is very important. The fact that the children don't want to see you IS evidence, but not conclusive (because they could then say it is for a different reason, something you did, for instance).
I only see her at a facilitator once a month. My 13 year old girl doesnt talk to me and told my family she hates her father. Things you need to address in any motion: Why does she think shy hates you? Tough time for a 13 year old.
My 10 year old sees me with my parents for 3 hours a week because she is comfortable with that.Things you need to address in any motion: Why would she NOT be comfortable with 3 nights/week, without the grandparents? This is the big question that needs to be answered. Most 10 year old girls WANT to be with dad.
But that is ending in 2 weeks. My parents will be out of the picture as it says in the consent order. What does the consent order say about the grandparents? I thought you said it was unsupervised visitation, but this sounds the opposite? These are things to review.
