Court Order Against FIL?

(6 Posts)

My husband and I are divorcing, he won't have access to a car once I move out with the children and he is threatening to let our two young sons drive with his father.

His father is an alcoholic and starts drinking early in the day (before noon) and will drink upwards of 16 tins of lager a day.

I don't have any proof of this but my STBXH has told me this for years.

Does anyone know if I can get a court order barring my children from ever driving with their grandfather?

I'm at a loss on how to handle this.

Maybe speak to the police (101 non-emergency number) so your concern is logged and evidence gathered. If he (FIL) starts being pulled over, it would hopefully not be very long before he is taken off the road.

Does he drive a lot now? Have you never raised your concerns, even anonymously, with the police?

Tip the police off that he drink drives. His name. His address. His car reg and any other car reg in the house.
But tbh I would have been doing this for years, as soon as I became aware. Ad any time I suspected that he was drink driving I would have informed the police.

Sorry I never replied. My not-soon-enough-tbxh stalked me on mumsnet, found this thread, and threatened to go around responding to each thread I was on, telling his story. Saying this was unfair of me to try and get advice. It was a pattern in our relationship, trying to keep me from having any support or help.

I wanted to thank the people who took the time to respond.
