Ex's boyfriend with kids


#1

If the boyfriend is a danger to the children then the court may order that. If he is not a danger to the children then it would be unusual for a judge to order this.

What would it take to prove he is a danger and get this order? Would a judge order this if I say I believe he is a danger to the children?


#3

How is he a danger? Have there been instances that have occured? Does he have a history of domestic violence? There would probably be need for proof, not just your belief. The children have witnessed illegal actions, have been physically mistreated, neglected…
Generally, there is not a lot that can be done to keep children away from the ex’s new boyfriend just as there is not much that your ex can do to keep the children away from someone you may be dating. It’s good to keep in mind that you do not control this situation while the children are with the other parent unless you have complete sole physical and legal custody or can show reason behind wanting there to be limited contact with any specific person.


#4

You would have to prove he is actually dangerous to your children or that there is some other reason it would be detrimental to their well being to be around them. The judge may base it on your word along, however it is more likely you would need some proof to back up whatever allegations you were making. What are your specific concerns about this individual?

Our custody hearing is approaching and I want to deny my STBX’s boyfriend any contact with my kids. Is it possible to get a judge to order that?
