My mother is in contact with a lawyer to sue me for visitiation rights with my 5 and 8 year old girls! She is currently dating my ex brother in law and my children came home one day and told me that when he is around she doesnt pay any attention to them also she has blown us off and changed plans or just plain not showed up when she told them she would. I tried to talk to her many of times about this issue and she would just get pissed off and not listen to my concerns for the girls. As time has gone by all I asked was that he did not come around when she had them or she would not mention him around the girls or I. She continually ignored my rules and then one day my 8 year old came home crying telling me that grandma told her that this dispute was all her fault and she had to fix it or she couldn't see her anymore. I had it then. I called her and told her that it was not ok to try to manipulate my daughter and she was no longer allowed to see them anymore or have contact with them either, She has continued to harrass and stalk us by showing up at school events and soccer events she knows we will be at. As time has gone by my daughter has told me more about grandma yelling at her for the things I have said to my mother and drinking around her and having her boyfriend spend the night with her when I told her he wasnt to be around and also letting him take them places without grandma there and without my knowledge. What should I do? Does she actually have a case where she could win visitation rights with them?
