I am in Iowa. I have two kids 5 and 3. a son and daughter. Well their father has been hounding me for visitation and well we made an agreement that he wouldn't bring his new girlfriend of like 2 days around the kids just yet and I'd let them visit for a few hours after school on Friday and planned for all day Saturday. Well when I picked the kids up this last Friday night my daughter whose 5 got in the car telling me she met daddy's girlfriend and she was laying in bed next to daddy and said she was going to spend the night and said they were kissing in front of her. I brought this up to him and his response is "so what". He is also mad because I didn't let them spend the night. I said just where are they going to sleep if she's in your bedroom (he lives with his mother in a 2 bedroom house and he has one room his mom has the other also things in the house work only half the time and there is random people that come and go) and his response was "oh id throw a bed or something up in the living room". so I've also been going around and around about them not spending the night there, because of not having separate sleeping places for the kids. He says I am being unfair and a bitch and its my way or no way and says I'm punishing him for leaving me and so on
So I'm wondering what is your opinions about this situation?
Does anyone know what the rules/requirements are for a father to have their children spend the night in Iowa?
