Following up on a previous question, located here: "https://www.avvo.com/legal-answers/any-legal-options-regarding-instability-of-childre-3684578.html". I found out shortly after receiving an answer to this question that they are in fact not living in their own home, and are staying in the house with another married couple who has two kids, and my children do not have their own bedroom. The address that my ex-wife provided me as to where she's living was a random address to someone else's house, and she refuses to tell me the correct address, as she says that it's none of my business, and if I want to know, I can take her back to court. She is required by our divorce decree to notify me of any change in address. I have spoken with numerous attorneys, but cannot find one that will take my case due to being within the first year of divorce, as they say none of these facts are much of a concern at this point. They have moved numerous times within the past 7 months, and been introduced to numerous different partners, and she's not providing a stable environment for them. Are there any other options?
Considering that your ex is not providing you with a correct address, how are you able to visit with your children? If you can prove the facts you have provided, I think that you are coming very close to having sufficient facts for a modification of custody, but waiting another 5 months may be best, as you don't want to file prematurely and have attorneys fees assessed against you. You may consider calling CPS and requesting a welfare check on the children. This would give you more ammunition, because the investigator would be able to testify at a hearing in regard to the condition of the house the children are living in.
