My ex has drastically changed in the past 6 weeks. He's met a girl, moved in with her. Is talking about switching jobs and is now saying he wants to share the kids equally. I am resistant to this because I don't know anything about the new girlfriend except she doesn't have custody of her own children and since she came along our communication has gone seriously down hill. My children are young (4 and 2) and I feel them being away from me half time in a home that is so up in the air is not a good thing. I have tried to compromise with him and talk with him, but now we are only to talk via email. The emails he sends me are clearly written by the girlfriend and now I feel as if I am fighting the both of them. Our agreement gives us joint custody, but it doesn't describe access. I have had to go to a lawyer to define access as my children come home from his house tired, cranky, and sick. There have been numerous times he has had people look after them so he can go out drinking and I have not even known where my children are. Once my son came home with a bruise on his bottom from his father spanking him (admitted by dad) and my daughter told me that she showered with daddy and the new girlfriend. It's all stuff I have tried to talk to him about and he says he allowed to parent how he wants. I just don't know what to do anymore. My anxiety level is at an ultimate high. My spirit is broken. My heart is in pieces and I am consumed with worry for my children. What should I do?
