Keeping contact with my former spouse is necessary. How should I deal with him?

Keeping contact with my former spouse is necessary. How should I deal with him?

Answer

A woman is required to cover her body with the exception of her face and her hands in front of all men except of her husband and close relatives to whom she may not be married. She may relax her dress in front of these relatives.
Her former husband is just like any other man and since they have to discuss certain matters relating to the upbringing of their children, they may meet in the presence of either the woman’s new husband or some of her immediate relatives. She can wear the same type of clothes she wears when she goes out. In other words, she need not cover her face and hands.
