I'm having trouble sleeping and it's well past my bedtime. My coparent lives in Vernal, Utah, and custody, which I have full physical custody
of our Phillip is here in Nevada. This has been going on since the day I asked my ex to pay $300 a month in child support
. He threatened me then assaulted me. in the police report, he told the Detective after his arrest, "I will take everything from Rhonda and she will have nothing left when I'm done with her." Obviously he wasn't happy I kicked him out in January 2009. I filed for divorce
in 2010 and right before that, in July is when I asked for the $300 a month. He threatened me and subsequently assaulted me. forget all that. Now, he tortures Phillip via texts and we only communicate via OurFamilyWizard. I'm tired of him taking me to court every couple years and this last time in December, the Judge was so mad at him for taking me to court (since he did in 2013 as well) for not taking the 8 week parenting courses, which I did - in fact a week after an emergency appendectomy in agony so I could protect Phillip. Mr. Wymer is what Phillip's psychologist refers to as a narcissistic sociopath. I want to know how many states have an age at which time a kid can say "no more". The ugly nasty texts Mr. Wymer sends to Phillip have now broken the camel's back. I've, this entire time, taken the high road, never bad mouthing his Dad but instead, let his dad destroy the relationship on his own. Mr. Wymer has told his own parents, his daughter of 30+, his sister, nephews and other relatives in the Vernal, Utah area that he'll spit on their graves when they die. I'd hoped when he remarried he'd leave Phillip alone or at a minimum be civil, but the last text was the straw that broke the camel's back. All these years, I've encouraged Phillip to respond respectfully ***** ***** at all. After a couple of the last psychologist appointments, Dr. Dennis called me at work saying he was sorry but Phillip was in tears sobbing as his Dad had just yelled, screamed and cussed about me. It's insanity at it's finest. Our communications are through OurFamilyWizard and now the Judge, since December can see the posts but doesn't care in my opinion about what's best for Phillip OR he'd have allowed and agreed to teenage discretion. Judge Harter hardly listened to my attorney. It was a complete waste of hard earned money. I want to start a Petition to change the age limit in Nevada as I know I can get the signatures needed to take before our Govenor or senators. I'm simply beyond this. Dr. Dennis told me it's now time for me to step back and let Phillip tell his dad how he feels, say it how he wants and when he wants. So, after his birthday on Saturday, Phillip has told me and my Aunt (his Great Aunt Connie who lives with us), he intends to call his Dad Sunday and tell him he hates him and never wants to see him again. He's threatening
to run away if he has to spend 5 weeks with his dad this coming summer when he's not allowed to see his Grandparents, Aunt, Uncle and cousins or his own half-sister and her kids. Yes, I'm writing a book about it I shall publish when Phillip is 18. How on earth can I get through to someone who will listen??
