I have been been scrolling through the internet trying to get advice on what seems an ever changing more complicated separation. I’m wondering if anyone has experienced this real life messy Eastenders episode and whether there is anything legally I can do to prevent my Ex’s new partner from being in my two young girls lives. My reasons are:
His new girlfriend is the children’s auntie and has been all their lives.
The children have had so many changes in six months … moved twice (because my ex refused to leave the house), coming to terms with the fact that their mummy is no longer with their dad.
the Auntie has diagnosed mental health problems
My ex shows no remorse about his new relationship towards myself or his brother. This was an affair and I was still living with him when it started. He does not think introducing her to the girls is an ‘issue’. This is a big concern to me.
This isn’t a revenge jealous thing, i am pleased to not be with him after years of abuse, but I am generally concerned it’s emotionally harmful to the children ( we only split 6 months ag0).
Ps I would just like to add that their is an ongoing threat of violence to my ex from his brother. His brother has already beaten my ex up badly over this- I think this indirectly puts my children at risk.
Although she does have mental health issues.. but just depression. But she did not work for a whole year because of it a year ago. But she’s on medication and back to work now, so in the courts view I’m guessing that it no longer really poses a risk?
