Daughter's violent ex's family turn up at my home to ask where she is

DEAR DEIDRE: MY daughter managed to get out of an awful, violent marriage four years ago.

She is  45 and now lives with my three grandsons and her new boyfriend, and is very happy.

Her ex has no contact with the children but members of his family regularly turn up at my home unannounced – to ask where my daughter and her kids are living or to try to catch me out.

I am a 72-year-old man and dread the day they will turn up again.

I always keep the conversation as short as possible but worry they will take their frustrations out on me or my home – their family do not have the best reputation.

When they ask to see the children, I always politely suggest that they go through the courts for access.

I don’t like my daughter visiting my home any more in case they turn up when she  is here.

DEIDRE SAYS: You could try contacting the Coram Children’s Legal Centre (childrenslegalcentre.com, 01206 714 650) who offer free legal advice and information about family issues and childcare in the case of family and relationship breakdowns.

They would be able to advise you about your situation and on how to stop this man’s family from turning up unannounced at your home.
