Does a non custodial parent have to give a custodial parent their address? 7 Answers as of March 06, 2013My wife has two children with another man. She has had to put an order of protection on him in the past. He also has a past with trespassing and other things. He is also the custodial parent of the two children. Now, I, the non custodial parent’s husband has purchased a new home and I do not prefer to give him the address because of his past. She, the non custodial parent and he the custodial parent has agreed to allow her to have the two children from Friday until Sunday every other weekend. Do I have to give him the new address and if so, can I tell him if he enters the property he will be arrested for trespassing?

If there is a current protective order it could specify her address is confidential. If not the father has the right to know where the kids live. However there is no right to go into the home. She could go to court for an order for curbside exchange of the children if he causes problems.

He is the parent with placement of the children for what ever reason so therefor he is entitled to know where the children are going to be or he does not have to allow them to stay overnight, if you have an order the enjoins and restrains him from coming onto the property there should be a clause in it that makes exception for the children, also I would assume that your wife must pickup and drop off, but if he needs to come for the children for any reason and you do not have an order, what are you going to do call the police stating that he is trespassing coming to pickup the children, that would nice for the kids to see, work something out.

If it is a court order that she and he are to provide each other with addressess, then yes, they have to exchange that information (and there usually is in the order). Sounds to me like their needs to be some sort of modification filed with the courts if he is that much of a threat. Don't get in the way of this court order until its been modified to suit your needs or to suit the best interest of the situation.
