Hello there --
Do you have any idea why this is being played in a public forum like that? Did their father grant his permission for it to happen?
Hello again --
Were the parties on the tape aware that they were being recorded at the time? You need the consent of at least one person to the conversation to actually tape the conversation in Georgia (some states require the consent of all participants -- many states require the consent of just one and GA is in that group). However, because the children were minors, there is an argument that they could not consent so the only valid consent would be from your ex husband. Was he aware of the recording?
My suggestion is that you get an attorney yourself to send this woman a "cease and desist" letter regarding the tape and order her not to play it in a public setting or you will pursue a private lawsuit against her for defamation of character, invasion of the privacy of your children and harassment. A letter from the attorney may actually do the trick to get her to stop making this into a public display (also have your lawyer send a copy to her attorney in the divorce matter). Then, if she fails to heed the warnings, you can certainly file a lawsuit against her over these matters. However, as far as pressing criminal charges, the only real criminal issue here is if it was recorded illegally, which you say it was not.
