Parental Responsibility 16+ was created by Pammie21
The issue is PR. My STBX was abusive towards me - controlling, emotionally & verbally abusive towards me. After separation my ex got drunk and got verbally agressive with our son which upset him to the point of not wanting to be alone with his father. My son had a seizure and was taken into hospital earlier this year. As his father had a new girlfriend he didn't come home to see his son. My son took this rejection badly and refused contact (still current). I am in counselling because of the abuse and have also cut all contact with my STBX for my own wellbeing. Now my son has been diagnosed with possible epilepsy and my STBX is demanding contact either from my son, but if he won't have contact he is insisting I allow direct contact , as he wants updates about his son's condition. I have offered to update his family, but don't want contact as this will open me up to more abuse. He is now threatening me with all sorts of actions legal and likewise to obtain this contact . Can he do this? My son is 16 and will be 17 early next year.

As your son is almost 17, the courts wouldn't make any order in respect of him as he would be deemed old enough to make his own decisions about if or when he sees his father. Likewise, any sharing of his medical information and records would require your son's consent first.
