I was married to a man for 23 years, I gave birth to three children by him. He is dying of cancer now, we have been divorced 14 years, and his mother has (every since our divorce), has talked trash on me to our children,and anyone she can get to listen. It has been 14 years! She has threatened my children with disinheritance if they call me, write me, come over and see me, she prohibits them from having anything to do with me. They are ages: 34, 30, and 24. All 3 live in homes that the grandmother owns, so being thrown out of a free home–they pay no rent-is a constant threat from this ex-mother-in-law of mine. I need to know, in MO, where I live, will I be able to be at my ex-husband’s funeral? I know how much the mother of my ex hates me, but I never had those feelings for my ex-, nor did he have those feelings against me, it is really just her who has been a vicious, hateful, and manipulative older woman. Plz let me know my rights.
