  1. Two parties co-parenting a 10 year-old child MUST communicate. They must discuss issues related to schooling, health, general mental issues, etc. By trying to interfere with that you are ultimately not acting in the child's best interest. The child deserves better.

    Legal disclaimer: In accordance with the Avvo community guidelines, this communication does not constitute "legal advice", nor does it form an attorney-client relationship.


  2. I whole-heartedly agree with Robert!!! And you are a grown woman, shame on you! You may be a step-parent to that child, but you are not that child's mother, nor a party to that suit, so there isn't anything she can "sue" you for per se from the facts as you've presented. I will tell you though if you were in Tarrant County, you and your ex could be and would severely admonished by the court for that sort of behavior and it could have adverse effects to his rights. Communication is ESSENTIAL to co-parenting a child!!! Put your insecurities or issues aside and encourage your husband to have open, effective and honest communication with his child's mother.
