I've said from the very beginning of my time here on GN that our estrangement is down to our ES's wife influence, so I've been saying so for 7.5 years
Yes, but you saying that your son’s wife is/was jealous of you and his relationship is very different to saying that your son is in a controlling and coercive relationship punishable under Section 76 of the Serious Crime Act 2015.
There's plenty of evidence to substantiate our belief, all of which I've posted about here on GN over the years
No, there really isn’t. No evidence whatsoever from you of your son being in a controlling and coercive relationship punishable under Section 76 of the Serious Crime Act 2015, described by The Crown Prosecution Service as follows:
• Coercive behaviour is an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim.
• Controlling behaviour is a range of acts designed to make a person subordinate and/or dependent by isolating them from sources of support, exploiting their resources and capacities for personal gain, depriving them of the means needed for independence, resistance and escape and regulating their everyday behaviour.
Again, it would take much more than your son ending his relationship with you on the grounds of issues from his childhood and your apparent bad treatment of him and his wife, for such a relationship to be considered controlling or coercive and punishable under the above Act. Do you have concerns or evidence of any of the following, for example:
• Deprivation of basic needs, such as food.
• Monitoring his time.
• Monitoring him via online communication tools or spyware.
• Taking control over aspects of his everyday life, such as where he can go, who he can see, what he can wear and when he can sleep.
• Depriving him access to support services, such as medical services.
• Repeatedly putting him down, such as saying he is worthless.
• Humiliating, degrading or dehumanising him.
• Controlling his finances.
• Making threats or intimidating him.
Yes, of course we worry about our son's and GC's welfare but there's nothing we can about it which is why we're 'out'; to make sure we can't do anything
Yes, there absolutely is. If your son is in a controlling and coercive relationship punishable under Section 76 of the Serious Crime Act 2015 then he and his children are in an extremely dangerous situation and I would ask why you have not contacted the police and/or social services. What would you have to lose, you don’t have a relationship with him anyway. Your actions could offer him a way out and to safety, for both him and your grandchildren.
This is an extremely serious allegation to make Smileless and I would ask you again, what other factors make you believe your son is in such a relationship?
