I have a divorced Dad who wants access to his kids' game schedules.  I can give it to him, but it occurred to me that what if the ex-wife has a restraining order or some other legitimate reason to not want him to know.  So, I could ask her permission.  But what if the divorce was not amicable and she would say no just to be spiteful.

Well, we said no.

But I would be interested in what others here have to say.

 

Even though I have no knowledge of anything other than an unamicable divorce, my head is filled with scenarios of him coming after me.

Many leagues, including several in our area, Post their schedules on their Websites.

If a parent with a restraining order goes to a child's game then he/she is breaking the law and is subject to arrest.
If the other parent is present I would think a call to the police would be taking place.

Nothing wrong with a Dad asking for his kids game schedule. There's no harm in giving the schedule, especially when you're hypothesizing about the dad's situation. As far as you or the league is concerned, if you haven't been informed of a restraining order, there isn't one.

 

It's a simple request, just give it to him. No need to over think it. Perhaps he was asking for grandparents or other family members. You don't know, and there was no reason to deny it.

 

If there is a restraining order or some other circumstance, then you have other methods to deal with it.

Our game schedules are public, although the rosters are not.
If a parent knows their kids team they can find the schedule.
Fortunately I've never seen an issue around this yet.
