Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
I am sorry for your situation.am I under any legal obligation to disclose that information to my ex wife?
Informally - no
. There is no law in Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 208 (family) or any other chapter that dictates that you must give your ex information about your significant other or fiance. So if she is simply asking informally, this may be ignored, or a letter may be written back stating that this is not information she is entitled to (let me know if you need a sample letter by using the REPLY button).If she is asking information via discovery/subpoena
during a pending child custody
matter, then she may
ask information in regards XXXXX XXXXX fiance's criminal history, alcohol/drug/ history, and other nuances that may affect the custody situation, as the Court views any individuals who are living in the household of a parent as part of the environment, and as such, affecting the decision.
But I am guessing here, she is simply asking informally. If so, then she has no right to know and you do not have to tell her. I am also assuming here that the divorce
decree does not demand that the parties update each other of adults who live in the households (let me know if it does). As such, then she has no right to have this information.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Best of luck.
