Q: decree my exes boyfriend is not allowed contact with our children, but after the divorce they get married is it ok now?

in our divorce decree my exes boyfriend is not allowed contact with our children, but after the divorce they get married does that make it o.k. for him to be around our kids? In context the decree only allows for visitation at my ex- mother-in-laws house, to avoid there being contact, he is a gangbanger and felon!

A: If the decree specifically names the individual and limits contact with the minor children, the marriage will not change that.

A: If it is in the decree then no. The man should not be around the children. Please meet with a family law attorney first (!) before trying to do something on your own. This situation can be tricky and turn ugly very quickly. Good luck!
