Post: ex spouse overstepping his boundaries
Posted by S G on 7/03/11
Divorced,one child from that marriage (10yo), two children
are not (18yo and 15yo). Went out of town for one week,
left 15 yo home to supervise himself with "nearby" adults
checking in on him. Ex husband (not father of 15yo) came to
my home, threatened child protective services and/or police
stating this was illegal for 15yo to be there alone. Made
15yo leave with him. Left my dog unattended for 2 days
inside home. Refused to bring 15yo back unless
he "approved" of my new arrangements. I arranged for my
18yo daughter to stay with 15yo at my home, exhusband said
he didn't "know" whether or not she had legal right to be
there so he called my leasing office and they released info
to him regarding whom is listed on my lease. Throughout
this ordeal, I received several threatening emails
regarding police involvement to foster care. The ex said
more than once that he was within his legal rights to do
all of this. I was very careful (I thought) before I left
town and checked CO law regarding leaving a minor at home.
Besides the fact that he is not his parent, did he have any
legal rights to do all these things and if not..what can I
do to prevent this in the future?
