  • I would keep my children as far away as possible from these people....If possible, even move away and start a new life for myself and my children.

  • Depends on if he has visitation rights? You might not have a choice. but if you have a choice  i will say. I would not let him or his family see my child.

  • Contrary to what in-laws or other relatives might believe they have absolutely not rights towards your child. If your ex has visitation rights, then you can't legally stop him from taking the children over there when he has them. However, if he does not that you have no obligation to allow any of his family. I personally would keep my children away if at all possible.

  • Okay , I really do feel that i don't want my kid around his family although it is the only family they have. My family is not around at all although we have a 4yr old boy and a 13 year girl. My son is crazy about his dad. So far I have been allowing him to get the kids. We haven't got the divorce yet are First court date is 1025. I just can't find it in my heart to take him away totally from his dad. I just make sure he stay as far away from me as possible. Their father grew up in a abusive household the mother in dad is still together they supported him in his behavior toward me( violence). He asked me if he could get the kids every first and third weekend . He already found a new woman. His Sister Which is my Kids Auntie Hate me with a passion because I started to fight back against his and theirs abusive. There Children which are my kids first cousins are involved in the hatred as well.
