Hijab rules must be fully observed while meeting or talking to non-Mahram relatives. Islamic rules for non-Mahram are the same whether relative or not despite culture in some societies which do not follow Islam. Muslim should keep Silat Al-Rahim with all his/ her relatives with observing Islamic rules of Hijab.

It is very important to have good relationship with your relatives but that should never make you disobey Allah in sitting with females who improperly dressed or wearing makeup. We must avoid such gatherings until the participants make proper sitting arrangement for men and women with out mixing.

Yes you are obliged to always be keep good relation with them because they are your family from which Allah (SWT) Has created you. Stopping speaking with them will never help you but will increase your problems as well as make you a sinner. Those who cut ties or have bad dealings with their relatives are cursed by Allah in Quran.

No. It is not permissible to cut ties with any relative, no matter what wrong they did to you. Cutting ties with any relative is a major sin which can never be justified.

If they did wrong to you, you should leave them to Allah Who is The Absolute Just, but you should never commit the major sin of cutting ties with any of your relatives.

We should tolerate such relative who is bad to us and be always kind to him as much as we can. We should not behave badly with relatives who misbehave with us. The Hadeeth from the Prophet (SAWA) orders us to do good to all our relatives including and most importantly to those who are bad to us.

It is obligatory on every Muslim to maintain good relationship with all his relatives even those who don't welcome him, or try to harm him. Cutting ties of womb is a major sin which brings the curse of Allah in the person who cuts ties of womb. (Sura 47, verse 22).

There is no reason whatsoever which can justify cutting ties of womb even if they non believers or non Muslims as they remain relatives created by Allah from the same family tree of yours.

No. Don't hurt your parents in any way but don't cut off with any of your relatives, because it is a major sin to cut off with any relative. Try to do it tactfully to perform your duties towards your parents as well as towards your relatives. Obeying your parents can not allow disobeying Allah Who orders having good relation with all your relatives.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

It is not allowed for him to force you to cut relations with those who it is wajib to keep relations with such as parents and siblings. If you cannot solve an issue by speaking to him, then it's advised you get a trustworthy scholar from the community to mediate and advise him that this is haram and a big sin. If you don't fear any harm to yourself, you may also contact your family without his permission
 

May Allah grant you a

It is good but not enough just to tell your mother to convey your Salaams to your relatives  if you do not have any real reason stopping you from getting in touch with them directly e.g. if some is in jail or hospital or far away and can not contact his relatives, then he can send Salaams to them through others.

Silat al-Rahim is a state of live connection with the relatives as much as the common sense understands as good connection with the relatives.

You need to good terms and nice relationship with every relative who is considered by your society as relative of yours. Basic relatives are your parents, their brothers, their sisters and their children. Relatives of your parents are also included in your relatives.

If your wife is not from your relatives, her relatives are not considered from your relatives, although it is always good to keep very good relationship with your in-laws.

Stopping talking to any of your relatives should not be more than three days as the Hadeeth states: Muslim is not allowed to boycott his Muslim brother more than three days. They meet, and each of them tries to turn his face from the other, and best of them who starts Salam on the other.

Being in contact with our relatives does need daily talk, but usual ways of contacts e.g. messaging, phoning, emailing, sending Salam or gift etc which is understood by common person as a contact. If the relative is far and you con not contact him every three days, that is not Haraam as far your contact with him is understood by both of you as a normal situation of good ties between you.

Short cutting of the contact is not acceptable as long cutting.
