  • Can my ex's fiancee legally get my children excused from school??

    My 2 children live with their full custodial parent and his fiancee who has no legal or custodial rights to the children. Can the fiancee call the children's school and excuse them from being tardy or absent?? Is it legal for her to do????

    Matthew’s Answer

    If the fiancee is acting at the request and consistent with the wishes of your ex, it is perfectly fine.

    I agree it is a good idea to get an attorney. I suggest contacting local family law attorneys to see which one you would like to retain.

    Matthew’s Answer

    Your ex would have to refinance you off the loan. It will likely be hard to enforce some kind of verbal agreement though. This is the kind of thing that should have been in writing in the divorce decree.

    I think there definitely may be a conflict of interest claim you may want to bring to the court's attention.

    Matthew’s Answer

    You could just get him to sign over title of the vehicle to you. This should have been addressed in the decree. In either case, if he won't cooperate, you may need to motion the court to help you.

    I suggest giving yourself at least a few months before a move for starting the proceeding or even longer if the Judge will allow it.

    Matthew’s Answer

    I agree with counsel. This seems like an issue to mediate or something similar before motioning the court for assistance.
