In a stipulated divorce decree, almost anything can be agreed to. If both parties agree that a specific third party shall not be involved in the child’s life, that provision can be included in the decree.

If the matter was not stipulated to and this request was presented to a judge, the judge would not likely order it unless the requesting party could prove the third party was some type of danger to the child. The judge will generally give each party wide leeway and trust to evaluate who should, and should not, be around the child during each respective parent’s parenting time.

Family law is based on statutes that are state specific. I am licensed to practice in Nebraska and am not able to give specific and detailed legal advice regarding your situation. You need to contact an attorney licensed in your state who specializes in domestic litigation. Cordell and Cordell, PC has offices in Tennessee for you to contact and set up a consultation.
