Good day, I trust that you are well.
My boyfriend is in the process of getting divorced from hi wife (very acrimoniously). We have just moved into a rented property together and the soon-to-be ex wants to inspect the house before she allows their daughter (2 and a half years old) to visit. I have no issue with her knowing where her daughter is going to be; I do, however, take issue with her digging through my private sabnctuary because I do not believe that her intentions are totally innocent. She alos wants to bring her boyfriend, mother, father and sister with her for this "inspection", which I do not feel is necessary. She is also refusing to disclose the address that she lives at with her boyfriend, where the child lives. There is no signed agreement or court order in place at present.
I would like advice on where I stand in this scenario as, like I said, I feel as if my privacy is going to be violated. Are there any guidelines for such inspections that you could direct me to or furnish me with? I have read the Children's Act and am unable to find anything that specifically references the above.
I look forward to hearing from you and any assisatnce you would be able to provide me with.
