Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Are both you and your husband on title?
Is there some legal order barring the children from the house?
Thank you for the additional information. I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.
Unfortunately, in the absence of a court order to the contrary, either you or your husband, as owners of the home, are free to invite anyone you wish to come into your home and be your guest.
So, your husband is legally entitled to invite his brother's kids to visit without your consent.
I suppose it is more of a relationship issue than a legal one.
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
Can you see my answer?
It is disrespectful for your husband to ignore your wishes, but in this case it is not illegal. You can refuse to interact with them, but you can not legally stop your husband from inviting them when you are not there.
I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
Do not be where they are.
You do not have to attend events where they are going to be.
You ca ask them to leave when you are there.
Yes, you can tell them to leave when you are there.
That is something you would need to take up with your husband. If he is not there, though, you can tell them to leave and call the police if they refuse.
You are very welcome. If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
A bonus is not expected, but is always appreciated.
Looks like this question is $36, but I am not an employee of JA. I do not have anything to do with the charges.
You are very welcome.
Thanks for using JA. Best of luck!
