I know it sounds stupid but I haven't seen any actual legal argument for me to be allowed to pick them up. I have researched this a lot and you guys are the first ones to agree to the idea. If there is an argument, legally, other than I am his fiancee, I'd like to know. She will just say he is pawning his children off on others just like he did during the marriage, which is why she refuses to allow him overnight stays, she says he'll just have others take care of the girls, which is ludicrous. That argument of hers just makes him totally paranoid during < parenting time > that he is a bad dad. He's not, my parents admire him a lot because of how hard he works to be a good father and my parents usually don't have a nice thing to say about anyone.
I know this is stupid but he and I are dealing with a woman who has held a grudge for something he did that we haven't figured out exactly what it is (and he divorced her) for four years now. She hates him and wants him to be miserable.
If I am going to show up at her house one day to pick her children up, I just was wondering if there is a better excuse than "I am his fiance and their future step-mother, it should be allowed." I don't have a legal right to the kids whatsoever.
Thanks for the help and the piece of mind. I do appreciate it.
