My daughter is 4, going on 5. Her mother has been bringing random guys and old boyfriends around her(4-5 that I know of in the last month). She has had the guys stay the night at her place, with my daughter there. She has taken my daughter with her and stayed at guys houses overnight as well. Is legal action an option?
I do not think that the action of having a boyfriend around your daughter is anything you can put a stop to in and if itself. There would have to be something wrong with the boyfriend specifically such as him being a former sex offender or something along those lines. The fact that she has boyfriend around your daughter is not something a court can stop. If you feel that it is excessive or she's using poor judgment then you could contact the court in that circumstance.
I would recommend you consult with a local family law expert (Matt Vititoe is great, among many others here on AVVO) who is familiar with your particular Judge's tendencies on the issue. If it is your ex-girlfriend and not your ex-wife, that may be a factor, and it also may depend on whether you have women spend the night while your daughter is in your care. I would certainly address the issue of your ex spending the night at guy's houses with your daughter -- likely not in your daughter's best interests. I wish you all the best of luck with it. With much respect, Matt.
Hi, This seems to be totally inappropriate. A lot depends upon the attitude of the judge who handled your case. i suggest that you talk to an attorney to see if there is anything that you can do about it. Good luck to you.
