I definitely need to book a family solicitor for some ongoing advice though. My son said he told her ‘Mum is good’ and then he went to his room for some quiet time. Poor thing! At least he knows when to stand up to her. I wondered why I’d catch him staring at me with a mean look on his face sometimes, as if he was trying to work out if I’m nice or to believe Grandma 🤷‍♀️
    You did, and you're an inspiring person for it

    It's not going to be easy to prove what she's saying, but this is where the child advocate will hopefully help. They will be non biased, and know how to speak to your children to get the truth out. They will look at what you're requesting, that your ex is disagreeing (because he will ), and then put their recommendations to the Judge with what is in the best interests of your children.

    Even if you can't go down that path at first, putting a parental alienation clause in your parenting plan would be a good first step. If the ex refuses to accept that, it's going to look bad on his behalf. If he does accept it, it gives you something to work with when/if you need to go further.

    OP do you live in Brisbane by any chance?

    If yes, I can recommend a lawyer.

    Ok thanks. Hopefully she will just stop saying things to the kids but I don’t think she will.

    No I’m in SA. A friend recommended a solicitor though so hopefully can start with some good advice.
