"final" court date tomorrow

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been waiting for this for a long time. Tomorrow is our "final" court date. BD is asking for a 50/50 time split, which I obviously oppose because our son is only 21 months old. He is also asking to reduce his child support by 50%.

I've felt confident from the begining that things would work out in court for the best for my son, but it is still very scary for me. I love my son more than anything and I truly don't think that 1 week at our house, 1 week at his father's house is reasonable or good for him expecially considering the fact that our lifestyles are now very different. It's so hard to artiuculate how I feel about this, there is so much raw emotion...

Wish us luck tomorrow and send us good vibes. The judge will decide about custody, visitation and child support (I am asking for more and it has been a fight). I hope I can keep calm and composed through everything.

You name means a woman of logic.

I hope all is well with you

Everything went well, but we don't have a ruling yet : My son's father did a ton of lying, but it seemed obvious to everyone and I am not worried about his lies reflecting badly on me or my position. We expect a ruling in the next week or two. This case has been going on for well over a year with tons of BS motions, briefs and memorandums- the judge has a lot of material to read through to decide. I'm crossing my fingers that the juge goes with a standard visitation schedule (every other weekend, 1 weeknight/week) and that he orders a child support increase. I'll update when we have a ruling
