I just found out last night that my ex went to Flordia with his girlfriend, our son, and her daughter. He's done this before and had his girlfriend sleep in his bed.
Now I don't care who he sleeps with as long as our son isn't present. My son has commented that he doesn't like to talk about his dad or their trips because "daddy does stuff that's wrong".
I've thought about hiring a PI to get evidence and try to put a stop to the overnight guests when my son is there. He only sees him every other weekend... you'd think he could keep it zipped for just 4 nights a month!! I wouldn't even care if our son was too young to understand, but he does.
Anyone ever have any experience with a PI?
Ahhh, the joys of divorce.

He is PROHIBITED from becoming involved in another relationship?
NO - He's prohibited from having a girl spend the night when my son IS THERE. For four nights a month he has to have his girlfriend spend the night elsewhere or marry her. I couldn't care less who he's sleeping with, but my son doesn't need to learn that it's okay to screw around. He's 6 - I want him to learn how to treat a woman right - open doors and say thank-you & please and be nice and all that not what he's seeing his dad do (my ex has had 27 "girlfriends" over the last 6 months - not that I'm counting but he likes to flaunt it so I can't help but see it) And yea I'm a little irritated that a NURSE let her daughter who was 4 at the time develop scarlet fever - as far as I'm concerned that's child abuse - one thing I CANNOT STAND from anyone.
I don't bash my ex in front of him... my son tells me that daddy lies... and yes I've told my son that lying is wrong (but not in conjunction to his dad... just that lying in general is wrong - I caught him the other day lying to me so we had to have that talk and he's finally put it together that his dad is lying to me - HE put it together NOT ME TELLING HIM). Plus I would never ever as my son to tell a judge what his daddy was doing - I couldn't imagine the pain it would cause.
Anyways, Renee - was it easy to work with the PI? The money is going to be coming from my ex anyways, so that doesn't concern me ... just never did this sort of thing before.
