Re: If i would die would my ex get the kids

The only way it would fly is if your ex happens to agree with it. Parent's rights will trump anyone else's rights unless there is some valid reason why he can't have custody of the kids (living with a girlfriend and changing jobs doesn't cut it typically). But if he is okay with your husband's parents having custody, he can certainly consent to it.
