My fiance and I have the kids for the school year, mom has summers and every other main holiday out of state. In previous signed agreements, when on our time, stating that the kids do not share a room with a recovering drug addict that is their step sister, has gone over well. It is now her time and she states that they will share a room no questions asked. We just found out that the drug she was addicted to was Cocain & also learned that she has been arrested for aggravated assault. She also had an overdose of opioids as recent as March right before she got pregnant. Can we do anything through the courts to ensure that the kids are not left alone with her or share a room with her? We do not have documentation to prove these facts, only verbal communication between the kids mom and dad. Help!?!?
Redirecting to Divorce and Separation. The question concerns parenting issues between former spouses/parents of the same children. You should be able to get some helpful answers in that forum.

Are there current court orders regarding this separation in the home is mandatory? If so, were the orders entered in Colorado courts or out of state? You may need to register the orders in the other state in order for them to be enforced. I would contact an attorney in Colorado and the other state to get more information and appropriate steps forward. If you believe the step sister is a danger to your children, it is important to act quickly for their safety.
