Parental Rights & Obligations

questions & answers

Question: My ex wife and I share joint custody. I have since remarried and have another child. I will have my child from my first marriage while my ex is deployed. I told her that he would be spending a few weeks with his brother at his grandparents house from my marriage now. She responded with she is giving her Mom her custodial rights while she is gone and has threatened to have me banned from letting them spend time without me around with his Grandparents from my current marriage because they are not blood relatives. Can she do this and if so what can I do.

Answer: You may want to review any custody agreements or orders that are currently in place. These documents may address whether the child can be left with or watched by non-blood relatives. You may also want to read the article on this website titled “Things You Should Know about Child Custody and Parenting Time”.  For online forms regarding Child Custody, please visit the Superior Court website. .
