Thank you for allowing me to assist you.
If there are no court orders requiring you to continue these services, you may disconnect them. You may also want to seek a family violence protective order to keep her away from you.
Such an order could temporarily keep your child with you without fear that she will try to take your child from you.
I am seeking a protective order. At this point there are only temporary orders against her. I am the petitioner
OK, that should keep you protected for now.
So there should be no issue with the phone cable and internet service?
Given that you have a protective order, it is understandable that you would wish to discontinue services that you would have to pay for. If you are worried about looking like you were being unreasonable, you can send her a note or a message advising her that you will be cancelling those services so that she can reinstate them in her name if she wishes to.
But, doing so is not required.
Do you have any other questions?
nope. thats all thank you
