Florida Family Law question: My daughter and her husband are

Florida Family Law question: My daughter and her husband are divorced six years. They have two daughters, 11 and 14, who live with her and spend every Wednesday and alternating weekends with dad. My daughter and the girls share a house with her boyfriend and his two kids. They are about to move to a new house together in the same town.The relationship with the ex-husband has always been contentious, lots of harassment and verbal abuse via email, paying child support consistently late, but it's gotten particularly bad lately as he has found about about the impending move. My daughter does not want to tell the kids or ex-husband where they're moving until the day of the move. (Because the ex has snooped around the house during a previous move.) He's freaking out about not knowing where they're moving, and his harassment via email has escalated. In recent emails, he has admitted to telling the children not to listen to anything the boyfriend says, that the boyfriend can't be a parental figure in the home, he's not your real dad, he'll probably just leave your mom, etc. We know that he interrogates the girls for information all the time. No boundaries. Plus there are some other things going on when the girls are with him that raise red flags: "dad makes us shower when we're at his place" and we believe he is sleeping with the 11 year old - something that is not that unusual with little kids, but just creepy when the girl is 11.What can we do in the court system to stop the email harassment, stop the ex using the girls as pawns, and can we get some sort of investigation into the "creepy" behavior I mentioned?

For over 7 years in total and 4 years in the legal system my

For over 7 years in total and 4 years in the legal system my ex and father of my child has been physically and emotionally harassing me via gas lighting, phone and email. He has been formally charged with harassment, contempt. I requested to use Our Family Wizard so the emotional abuse would be monitored by the court. The goal to stop the horrible abuse. He continues to emotionally abuse and manipulate blantently in Our Family Wizard. Question is, would Our Family Wizard be considered a third party given the fact that it is monitored? My question would relate to slander and libel. Thank you. ,JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The state of PAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Many things have been filed and reported.
