I feel harrassed by my step-daughter's mother (my husband's ex girlfriend), who bombards us with emails, phone calls, and texts complaining about the legal parenting agreement she signed last year. Sometimes we get multiple messages throughout the day and/or night. I've been in therapy over it for almost 3 years. What can I do to stop this?

I have a question regarding a charge being amended. I went to court for a bench trial thinking I was going to be testifying about an assault happening because the person who assaulted me was fighting the charge. The prosecuting attorney informed me right before the scheduled court appointment that my testimony was not needed because she was going to amend the charge to disorderly conduct. I did not want this. He also had been given a no contact order and had 4 counts of violating it. The prosecuting attorney amended it all to charge of disorderly conduct. Is it too late to do anything? I told PA right then and there that I would rather testify than have it amended to DC and she said no.

I was notified that my spouse wants a dissolution of marriage,

I was notified that my spouse wants a dissolution of marriage, and wants to run with the kids across the U.S., She has no plan, no job, no money, no car, no drivers license at this time. We are currently stationed in Korea, as I am in the army, and she is stationed here with me. She has a no-contact order against me, due to an argument, nothing physical. I am still allowed to pick-up my daughter, spend all my off time with her. My spouse even wants me to be with her when our son is born, and wants me to stay at the hospital, and spend the night there as well. All her medical records form the OB appointments state that she is not "suffering from any abuse, or neglect at home, and that she feels safe at home. I found out her plan is to move to NC, and I will be stationed in WA.What can I do to stop her from taking my daughter away? I feel like this a control, and manipulation tactic, and she is using this to get at me. She has no plan, other than to live with someone that she has not even met at this time.
