Q: My sons father and I have a court order 50/50 but I’ve have found out his gf is signing papers at school!? What can Ido
She said well they’re getting married until then and even then she doesn’t know enough as I do to be entitled to any paper work
Your question does not detail whether this is addressed in your parenting plan. You need to raise the issue with your kid's dad in writing. Explain your concern and how it actually relates to your child's best interest. Separate your own ego the argument of not liking this because it's your child is not a particularly good one since it treats your kid like a possession. What papers are being signed? How does this impact your kid negatively? If you cannot answer these questions specifically, this is not a matter to raise with the court.
Assuming for a moment that you can articulate why this is negatively impacting the child (and breaching the parenting plan), you would eventually file a motion to modify your plan. Good luck.
Kelly A Rochotte agrees with this answer
The answer depends on what your orders say to some extent, and also the papers that she is signing. If she's signing items directed to a parent or custodial guardian, that's inappropriate. If your order directs that an authorized person or person known to the child may do certain things on the child's behalf, then it wouldn't be an issue. That's an unusual provision, though, and if you did not agree to this, she should not be signing as a legal guardian. You should discuss options with an attorney.
I'm also echoing the good advise of Mr. Kotler in this thread; think about the impact on the child as to whether it's appropriate to go to court about this issue. Stop and think about whether your reaction is toward the girlfriend or because you really believe your child is at risk of harm. The court will always be looking at what is in the child's best interest.
