Q: Is there a way to stop my sons fathers girlfriend from "third party interference"?

I am having some third party interference issues from my sons fathers girlfriend. We have joint legal custody, but cannot co parent well and I believe its because of her interference. She includes herself in things that should be me included in, as the mother. Recently I went to my sons fathers house to have a discussion and it went smoothly with him- no cursing or yelling. And then she came outside instantly yelling and cussing, saying I don't get to just show up there and tell them what I am going to do. (They live with his parents). That evening I explained that I would like for her to not interfere for awhile until he and I can co parent better. He said no, and she will be attending everything that he does. And now she will be at our sons parent conference. Our son is 4 and she has been involved since he was a few months old, but she is making co parenting very hard. Would it be realistic to get a no third party interference? What option, if any, do I hav

A: The girlfriend is not to be participating in this way, since you and the father have legal custody of your son. However, you may need to take it the matter to court to have that firmly established.
