The father of my 11 yr. old son who has special needs is incarcerated for theft by deception. His sentence is a maximum of 14 years due to having a long history of criminal records. He has been vindictive and relentless since he found out that I moved on with life. He filed for his custodial rights in 2006 and the Court has been more than tolerant with the tsunami of Motions that he has filed - most of them frivolous and vexatious. The father doesn't really have our son's best interest and well being at heart. He only sees him as a pawn to torment me and destroy my life. Because he claims as an indigent inmate, he's able to file Motions and Pleadings for free. He has abused this to no end as he doesn't ever want to take "No" for an answer from the Court and wants to have full control with the whole custody situation. As he has all the time in the world, he is able to dream up false stories, fabricate lies and form his thoughts into Motions that the Court continued to entertain because he constantly cries about his father's rights. I have done nothing but obey the Court order. As his real objective is to punish me and eventually be found in Contempt and even go to prison, he constantly makes baseless accusations, twist things around and this has caused me and my family emotional and financial grief. The man is a master of manipulation and he knows how to manipulate the Court.
He has done as far as accused the Judge of taking cash bribes from me for favorable rulings, called the Judge incompetent and spoiled brat - but it seems that he still manages his way to filing more Motions especially Motions for Contempt. The father has sent letters to my son's school officials and they have bent over backwards to give him what he wants but he's getting more and more difficult to the point where he accuses the school of conspiring with me and even threatened to sue and seek for termination of my son's teacher. She is petrified of the father as well. Recently, all the father's letter to the school is being handled by the School Attorney. My son needs help with his behavioral issues but I haven't been able to do so because of the father's actions.
Last Christmas, my son received a package from someone we do not know. When my husband did a search on the internet, the Sender turned out to be a sexual predator and we were all petrified and called the Police. When the police opened the package, there were christmas ornaments and christmas card inside from the father.
Recently - during the last contempt hearing - he got me to agree to a virtual visit because he gave the Court a nebulous information that there are several prison facilities nearby that offer it. As it turned out there is only one and it's about 2 hours away and it will put a financial hardship upon my family as there is a facility fee, toll, parking, gas expenses - not to mention the wear and tear on my old car - plus I am very afraid to drive in the City. I filed a Motion that the virtual visit is not possible because of the financial hardship it's going to impose on my family and the Judge denied it. I am very upset because this man has been incarcerated for 6 years and he has not done anything to benefit our son. He has frightened anyone so far who wants to help our son.
I have been acting as a PRO SE in my case because I cannot afford to pay anymore lawyer after spending $15,000 for the first two years of the custody case. I know the Judge is very frustrated. He even told the convict that he is about the only prisoner in PA who has gotten more priviliges from the Court. With this being said, the Judge has not done anything to stop this man from wasting everyone's time. I am exhausted.
What can I do to stop this man from relentlessly harassing me and family? He has no shame, no remorse, no conscience. He is vindictive and we are in mortal fear of him. Please advice.
