I used to do all the paperwork, registrations, etc. Well I started trying to let go a bit and let ex handle some of it,a t his request. Well I am discovering that step mom is signing the papers. Example: Awhile back she signed paperwork with my ex to try to change my daughter's last name. They either did not turn in the paperwork or it was denied, not sure. When I found out about it I alerted everyone at the courts and records offices. I warned her then that she was considered a legal stranger and if I ever caught her signing legal papers pertaining to my daughter that she would hear from my attorney.
Well this week alone I have found two separate documents that state something like "I give my daughter/son permission to participate.......I sign releasing the (whatever program) from all liability, etc." She is signing paperwork that a LEGAL parent must sign. She does not have LEGAL right to sign away liability or waive responsibility to the program if my child is injured. Not to mention signing my daughter up for Girl Scouts when I was in the final stages of becoming a leader which ex knew about and "supported". Anyone else deal with this? How did you stop it? I'm waiting to hear back from my attorney.
