Ex takes and breaks child’s phone in Personal Property & Money Disputes Posted September 14, 2018 · Report reply 7 hours ago, pg1067 said: Yes. I'm sure filing a small claims suit against him will improve your relationship. I am more interested in holding him accountable for his actions and the subsequent damage than improving a non-existent relationship. I believe we are all responsible for our decisions and actions, regardless of the person or history involved. If I make a decision or mistake that results in damage or harm, I have a moral obligation to right my wrong, but I’m not sure if I have a legal obligation.
