My ex husband and I have joint custody, the children stay

my ex husband and I have joint custody, the children stay with me 8 nights in a row him 6. My partner and I are about to foster a 4 month old baby in the hopes to one day adopt. My ex husband is threatening to take me to court stating this will put our children in jeopardy and will hurt them. Our boys are 8 and 10, while I have made mistakes in the past, I am a good and fit mother, I have a stable job, stable income, never miss any events, and even help on his weekends since he is a physician and has little time, so much so that his wife my children's step mother takes care of them the majority of the time he has them, unless he is not on services, which is rare. Does he have a case? I don't believe he does, I am 35 advance for maternal age, my partner and I want to start a family and strongly feel this is the best way to go about it for many reasons, aside from finacial, it just is the right thing to do for us and shows our children the importance of helping and while yes, there is a risk for loss if said foster child is returned, it is still a valuable lesson. Our intentions are to continue fostering until we have the chance to adopt. Is this reason to have children taken away from me? Seems ludicrousJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, he just presented these threats tonight when I explained that our oldest will be staying home from camp to meet the baby that will soon be placed with us. The social worker is wanting to see how they interact. OUr younger son who has ADHD will be going to camp as that is in his best interst.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was married after my initial divorce from my husband which was a huge disaster, i cotinue to be held under water for someting that clearly a judge did not find offend-able the first time around, I am in a stable relationship now, extremely healthy and solid. My children have commented multiple times how there is little to no yelling with us and constant yelling at their dads house. Other than that, thats it.

My wife and I divorced recently. She and I settled out of

My wife and I divorced recently. She and I settled out of court and signed an MDA on May 9th. The judge singed it on June 1st. It's a DONE DEAL RIGHT? She is now saying that she wants to "reopen" the divorce and ask for more money. Can she do that? I was told numerous times to "NOT SIGN ANYTHING" because they are very hard to change after it's over... is she just yanking my chain here?
