  • Sadly there is not much you can do, if she isn't "harming" them in any physical way then no court will tell a parent who they can and can not be with.

  • It isn't worth your time in court to ask this. They will tell you it's none of your business. While I think BOTH parents should know the general quality of people the children are around, there isn't anything that can be done unless serious harm is coming to them because of it.

    I suggest politely asking your ex that he do not call unless his lady can be respectful, or he needs to call when she isn't around. I have a huge issue with the 'new woman' butting into the middle of situations such as's between you and him.

  • Boy, I sure wish we could keep my stepsons away from their mother's new husband. He hits them with a paddle, instructs them what to say to their own father on the telephone and insists that the children call him "dad."

    Wouldn't it be awesome if we could have the courts instruct the other parent to not let new spouses around the children?
