with ex. The boys are with us 49% of the time. We've been married for 2 years, I have known & been building my relationship with stepsons for 5. Ex wife hates me. she's sent me emails listing every person he's slept with in the past, including details of allegations of cheating. Oldest stepson was recently diagnosed with epilepsy. He was in the hospital for 24 hrs for tests. I went to visit, husband was already there. Ex went crazy, started yelling, said in front of kids "he'll cheat on you too," then had nurses call security to remove me. I have made a concerted effort to contribute both financially and emotionally to the support of the children, beyond what is expected. Am I in loco parentis? What rights do I have to visit step kids in hospital or attend drs appts? Can we file a motion?
