What Are My Rights?

In child custody, harassment by non-custodial parents is a real problem. As the parent with primary custody (the "custodial parent"), you have the right not to be harassed or threatened by the noncustodial parent.

Here are a few common situations custodial parents face:

  • Workplace harassment. You have a right not to be harassed at work (as well as at home or anywhere else). If the noncustodial parent shows up at work with demands, this can affect your duties as an employee and your relationship with your boss. Depending on the situation, you could even risk losing your job.
  • False allegations. Harassment is often accompanied by false allegations or threats involving your children, such as the threat that your child will be taken into child protective services if you don't honor the noncustodial parent's demands.
  • Online and offline stalking. You could receive dozens of text messages or more from your ex-spouse or ex-partner, or posts on Face book and other social networking sites, demanding visitation or other things related to your children. In some cases, this online stalking boils over into physical stalking.

You don't have to put up with this. Your only obligation is to honor the terms of the divorce decree set forth in the parenting plan, nothing less and nothing more.
