My ex-husband and his family are telling others that I am dead. What can I do to stop them?

When asked for parental contact information regarding my 2 daughters my ex-husband and his family are telling the people that I am dead. I found out when my 17 year old was pre-registering for minor surgery at a local hospital. She gave the woman my name and the woman told her that I had been dead 7 years. My daughters receive Medicad even though my ex makes more that $50,000/year. My daughters live with my ex (their dad) due to the fact that I went to prison for a crime he committed and he divorced me while I was incarcerated. What problems can I anticipate because of his lies?

THIS IS NOT A PERSONAL INJURY QUESTION BUT SEEMS TO BE AN AFTERMATH OF A BITTER DIVORCE AND IMPRISONMENT.

It seems to me that to avoid having to go into sordid details and risk tarring the child with the parent's crime they are simply saying you are "dead". Further perhaps in the eyes of your ex-husband and his family they regard you as dead. I am not sure what parental rights you have, but that is not a topic for the personal injury section of this website.

AT AGE 18 FOR SURE -- AND EVEN NOW IN MOST STATES IF THEY ARE OVER 14 -- YOUR KIDS CAN ELECT TO LIVE WITH AND/OR CONTACT YOU.
