He has two children from a previous marriage he only gets them every other weekend, but since its summer he gets them every other week. My daughter will not have a stable place to live if we arent allowed to stay there
Why not just marry now so his ex has no objection? If the papers say no overnights then that is the order of the court. But if you are married there is no problem.

He can be held in contempt of court for violating the order, if his ex files an action against him. I agree with the other poster that marriage is a clean option that eliminates any violation. If marriage is for some reason not an option, he can either not have his kids spend the night, or hope his ex doesn't file an action against him. You yourself won't be the person to get into trouble -- he will. (Unless, of course, you have a custody/visitation order regarding your daughter that says the same thing.)
No attorney-client relationship is established with this answer. It is not to be considered legal advice, but is merely given to point you in the right direction and give you a general answer as to the law regarding the question you have asked.
I agree with both of my colleagues, a "no co-habitation" clause is an order of the court and defying that order could result in your partner being held in contempt, incurring legal fees, and possibly a loss of his visitation. If your relationship is serious enough to live as a family with your own children marriage should be the next step, children gain their security from stability and marriage is a structure most children can understand. Your partner should also know that being married makes his position stronger should something arise and he would need to have his current order modified.
