hat to do if my ex-husband and I have 50/50 custody of our 17 year old son but e has totally alienated our son from me?

He has alienated him from me to the point that he has blocked my number from being able to call his cell phone number. He has also allowed our son to quit high school. I currently have to pay my ex-husband alimony which will end in 4 months. He is now taking me back to court for full custody and child support of our son. I have no money left to fight him and I need help please. I have extensive records of trying to contact my son, comments and conversations.

Given the unfortunate situation that you have written about, I suggest that you consult with a family law attorney as well as a truant officer about your son's failure to attend high school. You should also speak with the principal of the school that your son last attended to get greater clarity as to what the issues are with your son.

After receiving such information, your family law attorney can give you advice as to how you wish to proceed. Additionally family counseling may be of assistance.
