My sd is 11. I met my husband when she was 6 months old. I have basically been one of her 'moms' her whole life!!! The bm and I have always had a great relationship, really great! Until this past year! Suddenly we get a call from bm saying sd will never see us again because we talk bad about her (bm) to her (the sd). Never ever have I done so, ever!!!!! She violated our court order, refusing our visitations. We filed a police report and had to have the sheriifs get her to us. Now we are going to court in week. Bm is trying to take all visitation away. She is saying that I am a criminal, that we abuse my sd and force her to care for our other baby alone. Basically she is telling really bad lies, on legal documents, the 'order to show cause'. We are requsting a court eveluator to help us too. But what about the lieing on legal documents? What can be done about that? Can I sue her for slander and emotional stress on our family?
