    My children live with me most of the time but stay with their dad 4 nights out of 14.
    Recently the children have been saying that their dad’s new partners mum has been staying overnight (I think she owns the house and her daughter and my ex rent from her).
    Now they have said that their bunk bed has been moved in to the box room and the new partners mum has their room.
    My question is, should I be informed of who lives in the house that my children stay in?

    I have no problems with her at all, in fact, a responsible adult in the house can only be a good thing. I just feel that I should be informed of who lives with my children so I know how to respond to them and their questions/comments appropriately. I would definitely make my ex aware of anyone moving in with us here.

    Good Morning😀

    I think it’s only normal for a parent to want to know who their child is spending time with.And a simple courtesy on the part of their carer to let you know as is understandable that you may be concerned.

    Normal, yes, but is my ex obliged in any way to let me know?

    Obviously it would be courteous but unless it’s some kind of law my ex will not give any info.

    Oh my Lord,that must be difficult to deal with.

    I’m sorry I don’t know about that!

    Its pretty hard to find any info on it. I know I don’t really have a right to know who my children are around when they are with their dad. I’m mostly ok with that. I don’t really have any concerns in that respect. But living with someone seems a bit different to me. I know that he would certainly want to know if it were the other way around.

    If both are co-parenting and getting on then either party would let each other know whos living with them normally.

    He doesnt have to let you know who he lives with , just like you dont either  if you had a boyfriend.
