    How would you handle this????


    My late Ex's sisters are posting photos from MY photo album that my ex never gave me back. I politely asked for them to be sent to me and taken of Facebook but they have not complied.

    This is getting weird. They are now in contact with DD#1 and I don't know how to react. My first marriage was like the movie Sleeping with the Enemy. I literally ran away. Now His family wants contact with the girls. I told DD#1 it was her family not mine and if she wants a relationship it was up to her. I am just afraid she will get hurt. She is only 15.

    I need insight!!!!

    Are they pictures of your daughter? Is she putting captions under them like things are all fine and dandy?

    Does your daughter want to know her father?

    He is dead. There is no relationship to have. His family were NOT nice to me. I took their son/brother.
    In the divorce he was suppose to give me my hope chest with contents, that means photos.

    About the photos, Facebook may take them off... try contacting them, and laying out the situation.

    As for the relationship part, I have nothing to add.

    are the pictures of you or your daughters I would contact face book and tell them what is going on if both your daughters are minor's they will remove them there is a box that they have to check stating that these pictures are theirs and they have the right to post them if they are not their pictures contact face book I would also not allow your daughter to talk to the family if they are not removing the photos you can block them from contacting you or your children I hope you get this resolved in some way. I am sorry you have to go through this.

    I assume you had a divorce lawyer? Go back to him and tell him the situation and that these photos were a part of the property settlement that you were supposed to receive. If you were treated badly by your ex's family, and you were given custody of hte children (did he have visitation rights? did they see your daughters after the divorce while with their dad?) then it is up to you to determine whether a relationship with them will be an asset to your children or have a negative impact. Depending on the state you live in, the grandparents may have rights to see their grandchildren.

    Meanwhile, contact facebook and tell them that you own the copyright to these photos that others have posted; demand that they take them off immediately, and monitor those accounts to ensure that they are not reposted.

    Not sure what part you need help handling there, Damummis.

    If I was a guessing man, I would guess they're achieving their intended
    goal of getting your goat. You have something they apparently want, and
    it isn't forthcoming. (Relationship with the children.)

    Appears to be working?

    Your ex-husband is dead. His estate is no doubt settled. You did not get the
    pictures, and odds are you probably will not. Can pictures be copied from Facebook?
    I have no ideal. If I could, I would. Quietly.

    Providing of course the pictures are not tasteless, or would not cause your daughters
    to be shamed. You could still contact Facebook to have the pictures removed....you are
    the legal parent/guardian of these minor children.

    You asked these former sister in laws to remove the pictures? They refused? Move on to
    Facebook operators. No need for further contact between you and the former family members.

    No legal reason to allow these people a relationship with your children. Lets assume you have
    your reasons to remove these people from your life. Not your daughters choice. They are your
    minor children.

    The part I don't understand? Why are you spending your time checking on a DIS-LIKED former
    family member?
