As a divorce and child custody attorney in Dallas, Texas, I often get asked if it’s possible to keep an ex’s new partner away from the children during visitation. While it can be difficult to accept your ex’s new relationship, in most cases, it is not possible to keep the new partner away from the children during visitation.
In order to keep the new partner away from the children during visitation, you would have to show that they pose a danger to your child and that it is not in your child’s best interest to be around them. This can be a difficult burden to meet and it’s important to understand that the courts generally recognize that children benefit from having a relationship with both parents and their partners, as long as they are not a danger to the child.
If you have any concerns about your ex’s new partner and the impact they may have on your children, it’s important to address these concerns with your ex and try to come to an agreement about how to best protect your children. If you are unable to come to an agreement then you may have to seek court intervention.
