Your solution is to file a petition regarding custody and visitation with the family court (and under these circumstances you are probably going need a lawyer) asking for custody or for visitation to be set.

The court isn't likely to be too upset about the kids sharing a room at that age but the judge will most likely be willing to grant an injunction preventing her from allowing anyone of the opposite sex or that she is engaged in a relationship with to live there without being married.
