Any advise is appreciated. I am in a bad custody battle over my seven year old son. My ex is not considered guardian because we were never married and we didn't have a "family" relationship to get to the point. He wasn't involved in any caring of our son or financial support. We has a very volatile relationship where he was extremely controlling and manipulative. He wants shared parenting so he doesn't have to pay child support. He continues to put my son in the middle and tell him things and then tell me the exact opposite so that I look like the bad guy to my son. It has been nearly two years of his bullying and threats to bury me, and we are finally going to court next month. He brought his girlfriend into the mix only a few months after my son and i moved out and refuses to set any boundaries with me, has allowed his girlfriend to care for our son at any time. The girlfriend is now calling me a "C..." and "B...." on social media. My lawyer says i can't do anything about it and that my ex can do whatever he wants and see who he wants and have our son spend time with who he wants. I am also told I will probably loss my court case because of the laws in our province.
Any similar expereinces and advise and how I can bring this forward in court with my lawyer with taking the higher ground?
