I have two boys i let the dad see them he grows at his house he went and got a pp and he wants them to stay overnight i dont wtd

Asked over 1 year ago - Burien, WA

He gets to see them every time he asks . I don't think its safe for my boys to stay overnight. He has not paid any child support but he spent money to get an attorney and he handed me a parenting plan. We were together when he kept going to California for work he said but i found out he got married. I don't want my 5 year olds out of state. What do i do?

    Answered . Child support and visitation are not linked. It appears that you may want to take some non legal steps. You may want to go visit him at his home and meet his wife. You may want to have some idea of what the children have at his home. There was nothing above that stands for the proposition that the children should not be at his home overnight.

    You can ask the court to not allow out of state travel without your permission and getting specific information about what he plans to do etc. You can ask the court to not allow over night visitation. However, you will have to mention a reason why it should be restrained. Failure to pay child support should not be high on that list.

    Answered . When you say he got a Parenting Plan do you mean he had one drawn up by a lawyer but not signed by a judge or commissioner? Has this case been to court yet? Has there been a determination that he is the father of these two boys?

    If you have not been to court yet the solution to your problems may be solved by you being more proactive and taking him to court with your own proposed Parenting Plan and the sooner the better. Get a decent lawyer to help you and file right away.
