My husband recently filed for divorce and has locked myself and my 3 children (2 of which are his) out of the house even though he is not residing there, he's living with his gf in a neighboring city, I'm not exactly sure where. We have not been to court yet so we do not have any orders in place. Initially he blocked my cell phone so I was unable to call or send messages to him and now he has completely turned my phone off and has started sending me emails to try to see the kids since he hasn't in 17 days.
If there are no court orders, there is no obligation to facilitate parenting time. I would recommend emailing him to try to set up a schedule you are both comfortable with that includes contact information for both of you. You should consult with a family law attorney in your area to help you with this process as well as help you with the divorce case.
The answer given is not legal advice and does not imply that an attorney-client relationship has been established. Your best course of action is to have legal representation in this matter
If there are no orders there is no obligation. However that does not mean he won't file a motion to set reasonable visitation. If that happens then you have the right to know the address where the visitation will take place. In addition his address should also be on the case data form in the file.
