Can I limit my ex’s co-habitation with his live-in girlfriend while my kids visit with him?

My ex-husband and I are are preparing to file for divorce. He has the kids every other weekend. He also has moved his 21 year old girlfriend to his apartment – he’s 40. She is a very immature, rude, irresponsible and disrepectful individual. She says hateful remarks about me to my children, lies to them, etc. I simply do not want her to be around them or have any influence on them. Can I add a “no co-habitation” clause (until marriage) to the divorce settlement? What other options do I have?

The clause that you with with respect to the "no co-habitation" would be deemed invalid under the laws of all states in this country under public policy grounds that you have written about.

If you want to restrict the girlfriend's presence around your children because she is a bad influence on them, you would be able to seek such legally in a joint custodial and vistitation order with your soon to be "ex".
