Exceptions To A Morality Clause Banning Overnight Guests

divorce lawyer Kristen BuzzelliQuestion:

My court order has a morality clause stating neither party is allowed to have overnight guests of the opposite sex when children are present.

My issue is my girlfriend is pregnant, and I want her to move in with me now that we are engaged. Is there an exception to that rule if someone is engaged to a pregnant woman so that I can help take care of her?


I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Missouri divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.

Where I practice, you would have to:

1) Get married to your significant other


2) File a motion to modify in your divorce case and have the order of the court amended to allow overnight guests of the opposite sex.

The fact that one person is pregnant or engaged is not sufficient to get around the order of the court. The morality clause will stand unless one of those two aforementioned options are used.

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with a divorce lawyer in your jurisdiction.
