Meridian, ID asked in Family Law for Idaho

Q: Does my ex get to tell me that my fiancé cannot watch my kids? That he right to watch them is revoked?

In our agreement it says that “work related child care” is decided upon both parties. Does this mean that we both have to agree or that we can decide on our own childcare during our own weeks? We have 50:50. My ex told me that she trusts my fiancé and that she is good to watch our kids. However, my fiancé and I broke up for a few days and then we got back together and now she’s saying she doesn’t trust her and that her right to watch my kids is revoked. I educated her that she’s not a dangerous person and I asked her to give me a reason and all she gave me was that the paperwork says she has to agree to the care and she doesn’t agree. She has threatened action if I allow her to watch my kids.

A: Parents often get in fights like this and I always tell them that they're welcome to change what they want and as long as they're getting along but if "push comes to shove," then the "default" is ALWAYS going to be to follow the last order to the "Tee."
