Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. I would definitely advise you to get the Gardai to speak to your ex as his behaviour is intolerable and needs to be reigned in. The Gardai handle these matters in a sensitive manner, mindful of the personal relationships involved and the fact that your child needs contact with his father. However, it is also important that you don't get intimidated by your ex's behaviour and the behaviour of his family. So, get the Gardai to have a word with him. Only good will come of it.
2. The Gardai will take your concerns seriously. Whilst most Garda stations now have a Domestic Liasison Officer who is in charge of dealing with disputes of a domestic nature, you can explain the situation to the Gardai and get the right result from the Gardai having a word with your ex. Ultimately, what is going on, should not continue. So, do get the Gardai to speak with your ex.
