After being married for 15 years, I was recently divorced in July of 2012. My ex wife is a very selfish, materialistic person who doesn't pay much attention to my two daughters, 10 and 13 years of age. She doesn't do anything illegal, just shotty parenting. Recently, my 13 year old daughter has been involved with a 17 year old. And she just turned 13 in September! I have almost got in a fight with the boy's dad. The boy is known for stealing and has had sex with multiple girls. He has ruined his rep in high school, so now he's invading the middle schools looking for his next victim. My attorney is incredibly busy, and hasn't had time to research this matter for me. I have heard it constitutes "custodian interference" if both parents don't approve of a child under 14 being involved with another minor over the age of 16, but I haven't gotten a clear cut, legal answer on it. I am desperate, and I feel like this relationship is a ticking time bomb. I love my daughters more than life, and I get them every weekend under my divorce decree. My oldest daughter had been over every weekend for 6 months, but now she won't come because I have set my foot down about this relationship. I am even considering taking her cell phone away(that I pay for) and other privileges. I just don't know what to do. Can someone give me the straight skinny, legally? Thanks for your time reading this...

There are some parents who actually condone that type of thing. If she were at least 16, it is not as bad, and you can give parentel consent. However, at 13, your daughter should still be enjoying her childhood. Maybe this is her way of dealing with her parents breaking up.
