Customer Question
treats her children and husband...
I,m having a problem with my daughter in law with the way she treats her children and husband. She has always been very abusive toward everyone and we had a falling out between us and she has forbid anyone i the house to mention my name or they will be punished. They have been married for 14 years and she just had an affair and I thought that would do it. But he took her back. But I'm worried about my grandson now that I'm not around to help him if he ever needed me because of her. I have an audio taped conversation with his grand mother and I and we talked about our experiences with her and her abuse and the fact she was running a day care with no license in NY. The tape talks about the times of abuse we both witnessed through the years. I wasn't sure if it was to late for someone to listen without a lot of evidence? Except ours and other peoples accounts of what they saw.

Thank you very much,

Rod

Unfortunately, as long as they are still married you have no rights to do anything other than file a complaint with child protection and have them investigate the abuse, but other than that you have no real recourse.

My mother passed away in 1996 in Houston, Texas. At the time of her death, my father had an on-going relationship for many years with a woman and they had two children prior to my mother's death. About a year or so after my mother's death, I asked my dad whether or not he had married the woman who's children he had fathered. He replied that they did get married but would not give me the date of their marriage. If, in fact, they did not get what I call "officially married" or are, in fact, in a common law marriage situation, how can I find out one way or the other? … read more
