We filed for divorce in Jan '09, reached a settlement in Oct '09.
Since this time, the Ex has made every effort to alienate S7 & S5 from me and my family. In Dec '11, after the 2nd unsubstantiated accusation of 'improper' behaviour with my children (CPS was involved and cleared it), I began recording every moment S7 & S5 are with me. I currently have hundreds of recordings with 60 to 70 viable and transcribed recordings of the children making various statements of the Ex's behaviour and what she tells them about the on-going custody issues, lies about me and my family, and some moments that contradict what she has stated in Court and in recent filings.
These are by no means a 'smoking gun', but this is where I'm at a loss because for the last 2-years I have been working Pro Se.
The Ex once again has brought up allegations of improper behaviour. I responded to her Motion and filed, separately, a Motion for Non-Disclosure stating that I wished to present audio recorded evidence and wanted to insulate/protect the children from the contents. The Ex responded by saying that she would never place the children in the middle by telling them they had been recorded because this was not in their best-interest.
The day AFTER I filed the Non-Disclosure the Ex withdraws S7 out of school early and takes him to his favourite restaurant. Ever since, he has acted secretive and will not say anything more than a few word to me. Today, as we are in the car, he says: "Dad, why do you record me?" Of course I was interested, so he goes on to tell me that his Mother told him not to talk to me about anything from her house because "your Father records everything you do".
Being that the Motion is awaiting the Courts decision, and she has already filed that she would NEVER tell them, but obviously has. What is my next step?
Any advice would be appreciated.
