My sons father & I aren''t together anymore. We''re never married. Went to court recently & the judge made it a rule that my boyfriend of 10 months couldn''t stay the night while I have my son. Is this a law in KY?? Why would they put that rule in place?

Welcome to wikivorce. We don''t have the expertise here to advise on U.S. state laws but can offer you moral support.

Here if a judge made an order like this, I guess it would be to protect the interests of the child not because there is a law specifically preventing new boyfriends staying over. Introducing a new partner can cause a lot of friction in the relationship with an ex. It is quite understandable that he may feel unhappy about another man in his child''s life. There may be other concerns - real or imagined. One may be that your new boyfriend may be a transient fixture.

You have a lot of time to spend exclusively with your boyfriend. Perhaps if the relationship was to become more permanent it would be worth challenging the order? It it is also worth checking the statute book in case there is a law about this. There are a lot of odd laws lurking around so it is a good idea to be sure.

Seems strange but if there are no welfare issues and it is a long term relationship I would appeal it in say 6 months.
