Do I Have To Let My Spouse See The Children Before We Are Actually Divorced?
Do I have to let my spouse see the children before we are actually divorced?
Unless your children are at risk for being harmed by your spouse, your children should maintain regular contact with the other parent.
It is important for children to experience the presence of both parents in their lives, regardless of the separation of the parents. Cooperate with your spouse in making reasonable arrangements for time with your children.
When safety is not an issue, if you deny contact with the other parent prior to trial, your judge is likely to question whether you have the best interests of your child at heart. Talk to your spouse or your lawyer about what parenting time schedule would be best for your children on a temporary basis.
