Topic: Harassment against spouse?

After repeatedly reminding my STBX that the temporary mediation agreement says that all non-urgent communication should be done through email, I got another text from him tonight.
My whole family went out to dinner for my father's birthday at our favorite restaurant, a Japanese steakhouse. At about $20 an entree, it's usually the most we spend for a nice meal. I let the kids bring their leftovers with them when I dropped them off with STBX. Soon after I left, he texted, "Trying to buy the kids love...Too funny...loser."
I'm so sick of him texting me and insulting me and assuming he knows what I'm thinking or doing. Since he continually texts me about non-urgent matters, I'm tempted to speak with my lawyer about this and see if anything can be done. Has anyone ever filed a harassment charge against their spouse or done anything like that? I know I should just ignore and delete or have someone else look first to see if it's anything important, but I just want it to stop.. I know it shouldn't hurt my feelings since he's just being an NPD asshole, but after more than 12 years together, I must admit that it does.

All I can say is F.T.G. What a fucking NPD idiot. I'm so very sorry your poor children have to deal with that BS.

God, what a pathetic asshole.
Shortly after D-day, I got my own phone account and used the new line for my family, teslet's school, etc. Eventually, I got to the point where my phone that was still on his account was put on silent and only checked once at night and once in the morning.
Do what you can to minimize his intrusions. I don't know how harassment against a spouse works...hopefully, someone will be along that can speak to that. But do check with your L if there is anything that can be done.

BG, your stbx is a total dickwad.
Call your L and just ask your question. The answer is most probably going to be that there's nothing you can do.
However...continue to take the high road. You have your kids in counseling so they and the counselor can 'witness' for you about who is doing exactly what in regards to your delusional stbx and his allegations against you.
Your stbx is a real POS.

In my effort to be *concise*, I often come off as blunt and harsh. Sorry, don't mean to be offensive.

Maybe there's nothing you can do now. Don't know. However, I urge you to print out each of these nasty grams & save them. At some point the cumulative weight of that vitriol should have some impact on a lawyer or judge.

Definitely save all of them. When you may need them in front of the judge. Especially if there is a custody issue.
So sorry your going through this.
