I currently have a family violence order against me - thanks to a horror family - and having been erased from my children's life, am now being baited and framed into breaches.
I have the usual conditions of no contact/communication, and no publishing of material relating to the children and their mother; and as such have a couple of queries about this.

If I have a facebook account which has dozens of pictures of them from prior to the I have to delete it/make it private...I blocked everyone initially, but would like my kids to be able to find these pictures if they wish, and it's legal?

I have opened other social media accounts since - as I aspire to further a photography hobby - and my daughter(or someone posing as her), liked and followed me today...I'm certain I can't follow her back or message etc...but do I have to block her?

The ex has also sent me a screenshot of an email between myself and my daughter which I know nothing of...she pretends to be concerned, but most likely is behind the email herself.

It is so counter-intuitive to have to think like this, especially since the children are now firmly in the clutches of the abuser and authorities that protect her...I am a sitting duck.

Any insight into these concerns would be greatly appreciated.

Close your social media accounts, keep the photos of your kids on your own computer. Don't get into a slanging match with your wife, you as the father will lose.

Through your solicitor get orders for appropriate contact with you kids and stick to whatever conditions apply. The kids grow up quickly enough and once they are adults you are free to see them as often as their busy lives allow.

You could put the photos into a private dropbox account. When the kids ask to see them you can share them (when legal) easily via a link,
