Thank you for your follow-up.This is a situation where you may want to seriously consider going back to court and filing for modification of custody so as to take away even his right to text and call, and that all communication would be supervised via you and your consent. Point out to the courts that the other party is engaged in behavior that is designed to cause parental alienation, and that such communication is not in the best interest of the child. You can also point out that the other parent is neglectful for failing to pay support, and that until he is able to show you and the courts that he can have communication with the child that is not hateful and disruptive, you prefer that such communication not take place at all.Good luck.
