My fiance and his STBX are in the process of divorce. I have not intervened whatsoever and have barely had contact with the STBX. She sends him emails all the time making false statements to make it seem like he refuses to see his children (paper trail for the court I am sure). He has never refused to see his children. In the beginning he woud ask her and she woud say yes but give him outrageous demands in order to see them. Such as… you must make reservation to see the children two weeks in advance and you may only see them 24 hours, etc. It got to the point where he said he would just wait and go through the court system to avoid the arguments. At that time he went to the school every week to have lunch with the children. The school secretary knows he and his wife and stated to him that each time he would come to have lunch with the children, the STBX would find out and call the school to have them prohibit him from visiting the kids. The school principal told her there is nothing he can do without a court order. My fiance has filed a temporary parenting agreement. He recieved a response in the mail from the STBX’s attorney which stated that she has made every attempt to “persuade” him to visit his children. She even stated that she communicates with me to encourage visitation. This statement is BOGUS! She emailed me once last week basically telling me that she thought we should all be apart of the childrens lives and that she would like to keep me in the loop and asked that I ask him to see his children. I did not respond to her because I felt it was another one of her attempts to make her look good and it would in no way benefit the children. Every statement she makes is false. She is basically trying to have emails to have in court to say that she has done so much to allow him to see his children when in actuality she has done nothing but cause trouble. I have witnessed so much of these actions and even conversations where she told the children that their father doesnt love them or care about them. She told the children that she would give them a beating if they called me mommy (stated by one of the daughters). I am sick of her and her attempts to make him out to be a bad father.
My questions are…
When it comes time for the custody/visitation hearing, would a notorized statement from me stating the things I have witness be noticed by the court? (I am considered the other woman by her, which is far from the truth. They were already separated when he and I met, but the divorce process began after we met, so in her eyes he left her for me)
Can others give testimony or notorized statements at the hearing such as the school secretary or the principal stating her actions that they have witnessed.
Can I respond to her claim of communicating with me because that has not occured. I would like to call her out on it so the judge/court knows that the statement is not true.
