Hello. My husband is having difficultly with getting his court ordered time with his daughter and it's gotten quite ugly. Most recently his ex wife has escalated the severity of difficulty and is now making threats to take us (not just my husband) to court. she states that she doesn't not want her daughter at MY residence or around ME. Aside from my husbands daughter having some difficulty with remarriage she and I haven't ever had issues. I am not a parental figure to her nor abusive, not a drug user or convict, etc. I've had absolutely no problems that would make me look "dangerous." I also have 2 girls of my own who are in many ways close to my stepdaughter. My question is how much mom can pull me into this? What should I be prepare?
The mother is confused - she has no ability to dictate terms about anything if your husband has court-ordered parenting time. That said, if she is denying the time, then you have to take her back to court and have the judge deal with it - she may choose to ignore the judge, in which case you'll go back again and again until a judge finally agrees and transfers custody to your husband. Until then, you'll be visiting the court frequently, it sounds like.
