Court tomorrow - worried, nervous!!! It is for contempt charges against stbx - owes me >$34,000.00 has not paid anything. Judge warned him, but, who knows. He is crying poverty and says he can't pay because he has too many bills and I make enough to support the 3 of us.
He also wants me to pay his legal fees when he was arrested after violating the restraining order. The DA tried to prosecute him, but, didn't realize it is a civil matter and neither did I until it all went down:(
Visitation is also up in the air. He wants evey other weekend and another friday into saturday leavingme with only 3 weekend days per month:((
Wrote a letter to the judge about my lawyer which I am sure he received, but, not sure what he thinks of it? Lawyer has been nicer & more responsive though..
Good luck! I hope things get sorted out for you. I'll be thinking of you. Can you bring anyone with you to court? That's what I wish I had done when I was in court last week. X was there with his mom who emotionally bullied me with a horrible death stare. Breathe. Don't forget to breathe!
You'll make it through! It's nerve-wracking to deal with all those issues, but really it sounds like your ex has more to worry about than you do. I mean, he's so far behind with all that money - and the fact that he violated the order AND expects you to pay his legal fees for violating it...? Crazy. I hope the judge sees how irresponsible that is as well. Hopefully too will just do the standard visitation thing and not give him the Friday thing, too - remember you can appeal, too. Hang in there!
