there are some good groups on here too. a lot depends on how often she will be there, how involved her dad is in her life. the rules for someone you see every other weekend are a lot different from the dad having full custody and the mom isn't involved at all.
let your SO be the parent, and don't push her to accept you. and set up some ground rules with your SO about how she is to treat you, what happens if she disrespects you, what you can and cant do about her behavior when you and her are alone together. also talk about what she is exspeted to do around the house, what the rules in general are.
