I just married my husband who has two children. His ex wife is causing complications with the 2 children because of her dislike for me. She currently has a live in boyfriend and a child by this guy. My husband's 2 children with her are in a very unhealthy situation in her household. They are talking with many people on how mistreated they feel by both there mother and her boyfriend. It appears to be a lot of emotional abuse takeing place. My husband and I are constantly trying to stay positive with the kids because we want a good situation for the 2 girls. But it is taking a real bad turn, for the girls and the girls fear going home because the girls are claiming their mother is making them miserable because of her dislike for me. They claim also that their mother plays 20 questions and then get angry if they won't answer with something other than I don't know. The girls are 9 &11 and I am very close to both of them. My husband and I have a child aswell together and I have another daughter of age 5. Our new family is beautiful and we are all very close. My question I guess is that his ex wife is refusing me from picking the kids up for my husbandt since he works . What rights do I have as a step parent? Our best interest sare solely for the wellbeing of the children. We don want to fight with her. However, my husband and I are really starting to feel the kids would be mentally safer with us. They have even stated this to us begging to live with us, but to scared their mom is going to freak out. We can we do?
