Hope to see you around here more often. Thanks for the welcome....the divorce is nothing to be sorry about though....it was the only option and has opened the door to so much more amazing things than I could have ever imagined.
Thought I would pop in here to say hello to all again. I have been off the boards most of the year....popping in to lurk and post once or twice. I had a lot of personal stuff to deal with and I am working my way back to normalcy. Glad to be back....trying to figure out some of the changes. Changes for me: Now divorced and did the single parent thing to my four kids for a few months. I have been in a relationship with my good friend, Megan, since the end of January...
Thank you for all your responses and welcomes! I live in a highly conservation town and I have put step-mom on a few things...they always assume she must be my ex-husband's new wife.
I wanted to stop and say hello. I am recently divorced from my ex who is now officially incarcerated. I have been in a relationship with a good friend named Megan since the end of January. This is the first lesbian relationship for both of us and it really came out nowhere. We are very happy together and have six kids between us. My question is when filling out school forms and other forms for the kids....what do you put for the relationship for your partner. I...

So far the majority says NO WAY NO HOW to getting their daughter's vaccinated, and I've read some of the articles I've seen posted on this thread and read about some cases of side effects, but really what is the big picture? Bold Mine. Honestly, my biggest issue with this vaccine is noone really knows the big picture. I refuse to allow my...

I see this happening all the time, that a client is assigned a lawyer by the court, and then becomes familiar with him and keeps the same lawyer for whatever he needs (and of course starts paying him then). It seems to me that a criminal lawyer will not be a great defense for him in the divorce case, and then...

Quote: Originally Posted by Shiloh I am not an attourney but this is my second round of failed marriage/custody 1. is it possible some one else is paying his legal fees atleast on paper?

I have a question for those in the legal profession. My STBX is facing criminal charges for molesting our daughter. He is represented by a court appointed atty. I filed for divorce in Feb. and he has now opted to use the same criminal atty for the divorce. Questions: Is it possible for him to use the atty as court appointed for the criminal proceedings, but then pay him for the divorce proceedings? Is there a conflict of interest involved since the hearings are...
