My ex started seeing someone a few weeks after we split and on the weekends he has our children, she is there most of the time. I have told him it’s not appropriate so soon, and despite him agreeing, he continues to do it. This weekend I found out that he had left the children with her and her children for the afternoon. I have concerns because I have heard lots of stories about her bad parenting – for example, friends have often seen her 2 kids (both under 5) wandering around on the streets with her nowhere to be seen. She also takes them to the local pub and let’s them run riot while she gets drunk. Plus many other worrying stories.
Is there anything I can do to prevent her looking after my kids? Bearing in mind that my ex won’t listen if I ask him not to leave our children with her.<!–/data/user/0/com.samsung.android.app.notes/files/clipdata/clipdata_191028_070838_045.sdoc–>
When he has time with the children sadly it is nothing to do with you who he leaves the children with BUT if you believe your children are at risk when they have time with him then stop them going with him.Offer him some other form of contact such as at your own home or meet him in a local park with the children for a couple of hours. Ensuring your children are safe is your top priority. Don’t worry about him threatening you with court, a judge will see that you are safeguarding your children and offering another form of contact xx
