My ex wife recently sent a letter to me through her lawyer asking we change the court orders to adjust the drop off times for our kids that we share 50/50 custody. She also requested that my ex girlfriend be added to them as not being allowed to have contact with our children as she had claimed the ex girlfriend had threatened her. My response was that AI would agree to the time change but that it didnt require changing the court orders. And I told her that she should file for a restraining order against my ex girlfriend if there was an issue and the courts would determine the validity of her accusation. After this my exwife began telling me I needed to be prepared to take off time in the next two months for court/mediation. As well as she wants only her and I to be allowed to post pictures of our children online and that my current girlfriend needs to remove any she had posted before her lawyer send her a letter directing the removal of them. Can an ex arbitrarily take me to court/mediation because she is upset? And can she limit photos my girlfriend posts with my approval if they are not inappropriate? I feel that she had no standing and is trying to make me think she does.
She can take you to court for anything - doesn't mean she'll be successful. You'll see the evidence when she actually files her RFO.
I agree with Judith- she can file paperwork to get in front of a judge for almost any reason. But that doesn't mean a judge will act on her request or give her anything she wants. If she has actual evidence of the threats or danger/harm to the children, there is a chance a court may rule in her favor. But until she actually files, you won't see her evidence (she is obligated to send you a copy after she does file).
