Sounds like you (or any siblings) are old enough to cope with this. I don't think your father is particularly choosing his girlfriend's children over you or any siblings you may have, but he is trying to win his girlfriend over and it's pretty normal. If her children are younger then it stands to reason they need more attention, but you and your siblings are more independent and can look after yourselves. If you are very hurt about this the best thing you can do is communicate this to your father. Don't get into an argument over this, but express how you feel. I am sure he'll feel bad and reassure you that he stills loves you. Try not to take it out on his new girlfriend either. Once they are together awhile and if they choose to get married, things will settle down and your father will make time for you as well (only if you tell him how you feel.) He probably thinks you are fine with everything and that you enjoy your independence. Good luck Marcy

Can you marry your girlfriend without adopting her children?

Yes, you have a choice.You do not have to adopt your girlfriend's children in order to marry her. Some men will adopt their girlfriend's children so they will have the last name and it won't be so confusing for the children, but that is entirely up to you and your girlfriend. However, even if the biological father is paying child support then you would still have to provide good quality time with her children; help educating the children, etc. You are just not marrying your girlfriend, but also her children and you will be their step-father. Do not enter into this marriage with the idea it is all about you and your girlfriend .. the children come with the package and are a responsibility to both of you.

What if your fathers girlfriend leave the estate to the father but father dies before policy holder does the estate got to children of the father?

If the girlfriend is still alive then she can change her beneficiary. If she died and didn't change her beneficiary then you may have a claim if her estate went to your father. You should speak to an attorney. You refer to a "policy holder" in your question as well as an "estate". If the subject is a life insurance policy and your father was the beneficiary but was deceased when the insured died then be aware that the girlfriend probably named a contingent beneficiary on her policy.

What if your girlfriend wants to spend time with her ex and her kids?

If the children are her exes then she has a right to either see her children if her ex has them or if she has the children then the ex (as a father) has the right to see his children. However, her ex can pick the children up and have quality time with them and there is no need for them to be together. It is time to communicate the fact to your girlfriend that it is either her ex she chooses or you because you are no longer putting up with this arrangement.

Your ex husband and father of your children has passed away and his girlfriend is trying to hold all of his belongings what can be done can she do that?

no she cannot, she was just his girlfriend, there should be a will, if there is not then a lawyer and the authorities need to be called in. ________________________________________________________________________ She can withold personal and/or real property until probate distribution has been decided. However, the biological children are protected under probate laws and succession laws will apply unless there is a Will that excludes said children. The divorce decree would have noted what property was to belong to the ex-spouse and what property (clothing, toys, etc.) the children were entitled to. If the girlfriend is withholding property that belongs to the children (things that were gifted by the father or others, items that were taken from the custodial residence to the father's residence) then she is required to turn those items over to the person who has legal custody of the children. The girlfriend is NOT legally required to give the ex-spouse or the children personal items that belonged to the deceased that were acquired before or during the relationship.
