Unfortunately,you cannot prevent your ex-spouse from dating other people. As long as the dating does not expose your children to danger--i.e. drugs, violence, etc., then the other spouse can continue to date, and can also bring who they want into their home (as long as it does not pose a danger to the kids).
I agree that bringing people in and out of your children's live is a bad idea, and if you had a prior agreement in another state, you could try to enforce it in your new state, but again,the judge may not be willing to force your ex spouse to limit his/her dating activities etc.
I hope this information has been helpful. Please let me know if you need clarification.
Thanks and good luck!
With the information provided, I don't see how they can hurt you and your spouse legally. If there are activities going on that are bad for your children (such as showing butts) then legal action may be warranted. You will have to hire a local attorney and pursue matters through the courts. These situations are unpleasant and are not easily fixed without the courts getting involved,unless the two sides can agree on how things should be.
I wish you good luck. Please let me know if you need more information.
