    Wow they sound like nutcases! As far as legal rights go, my parents went through a lengthy court battle with my brother's ex who falsely accused him of interfering with his daughters. After months and months of court appearances, investigations etc it cost my parents around $20k to be granted access once a fortnight. This situation is a bit different though. My brother was found to be innocent and mum and dad lost so much money. Ergh!!!

    I may have read wrong, but by the sounds you're still allowing contact with the grandparents so that might be good enough in the courts eyes. Maybe check with your solicitor if they're getting contact (eg while you and dh are visiting) is that enough that they won't be entitled to regular 'access'.
    Good luck, it's sounds messy
    Yes thats what worries me that they will fill her head with nasty things about me :-(
    They haven't seen her since Christmas but that wasnt intentional, we dont see them regularly. Dh was on holidays and we have a newborn too.

    My dh is just waiting on a call back from lawyer for advice.
    we really dont want our children seeing them at all. And we were also planning a move in the near future for better job prospects but I don't even know if we would be "allowed" to
    The law is so wrong sometimes :-(

    Oh my goodness

    I truly hope that they are bluffing about going all legal over this.

    If they do decide to go ahead, I have a feeling their true colours are going to show. You'll have plenty of evidence to display your IL's abusive behaviour. Just continue keeping records and documenting everything.

    I'm sorry you are going through this. One positive is that you and your DH are completely on the same page. I think it's admirable that he has stood his ground and chosen not to take their garbage and continue to let them hurt his own little family.

    Hadn't this been going on for years and you try to cut them out and then let the back in? I think you know what you have to do you just need to do it

    I know what id like to do; move on . It wouldn't have been fair to ask my dh to cut contact with his family. We've had our moments of not talking but nothing like this
    Im not sure what you're saying sorry

    Sounds like a horrible situation. You've already been given some great advice and information, but my understanding is this:

    The child's best interests are paramount. In the case of your son, I can't see how they would have a leg to stand on. He doesn't know them, and it wouldn't cause him any distress for them to be kept away. In the case of your daughter... it still seems unlikely. She's young, and by the sound of it doesn't have much to do with them.

    Sounds like you're taking a good approach...no contact; document everything. Hopefully it just comes down to a big waste of money for them.
