My ex and his father are threatening to open a legal case against me because my son was living with my mother full time for the last 6 months while i worked away. i have moved back home and I had an argument with my sister to which she said she wants to take my son until i have sorted out my life as i had no job at that stage. my sister and i sorted out the issue and i have work again and supporting my son financially myself with the help of my mother as well. we are not married and he pays child support when he feels necessary and its never more than R200 per month as where i contribute R2000 a month to my sons needs. i have never abused drugs, never had an alcohol problem and i am mentally as well as emotionally stable where the father abuses drugs, has a criminal record and been declared medically with bipolar depression. so my question is what can my ex and his father do to me legally?
