How old is your daughter, and why is she afraid. It could just be that she is feeling insecure. Children frequently confuse emotional insecurity with physical insecurity, and a new person in the house would potentially make her feel a little emotionally vulnerable.



Now, having said that, if it were me, I would be talking to dad about the girlfriend, and wanting to at least meet her if she is going to be a significant figure in their lives (and by moving in with him, this is what she has become).

It depends what is in your court orders, but unless it specifically says he has to, then no he doesn't legally have to tell you anything. BUT from a moral perspective, it would be the polite thing to do.



However, if you have reason to believe this person he is moving in with will cause concern for your child, you certainly have the right to take him to court to have it ordered that your child can't live with this other person. But be aware, the court has the right to ignore your request, so you'd want to make sure you had all your facts straight.

My daughter woke up and said that she was afraid she was going to be hurt and that is what scares me. I don't know who the girlfriend is but my daghter has me wondering what could be going on when the kids are with him.
