Can BM legally keep me away from SD?
SO and BM are in the beginning of what I expect to be a very lengthy custody battle. I have been with SO for 3 years (since weeks after SD3 was born) and BM is still livid about this (they were never married; SD is the result of a "friends with benefits" relationship). She makes false statements and accusations about me and SO. She has said that I am "inappropriate" with SD3 and that I "cross lines" and she has said that "over her dead body" will I be allowed in her kid's life. All these claims are ridiculously untrue and potentially hurtful to me in a professional aspect (I run a daycare) and she has no "proof" of anything to back up any of these claims. Is there something she can put into a custody order that says SO can't have SD3 when I'm around? We are unmarried and I'm not sure what any laws are regarding this, but I know it's her goal in life to split us up and keeping me from being around when SD is in SO's custody will surely put a dent in us.
