This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.

You can ask for a change in physical custody so your son would not be living with his mother and step-father, and ask for a no-contact order for the step-father. You can include in your motion a request for an order that the step-father not contact you at all.

If you want to send me your city and county in NJ, I can look to see if there are custody motion forms available on line.
