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!!!

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

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.
