My husbands attorney said this<br>
In an interesting spin on reality the mother expresses satisfaction with all three children. The mothers statement that all three children love their parents are well adjusted and amiable and intelligent flies in the face of the mothers allegation of a family rife with domestic violence.<br><br>
WTF can't a mother love and respect her children no matter what , and they are full of love, well adjusted considering what they've been through, amiable and intelligent.

Lawyer speak is often a few shades from "reality". Their jobs is to twist things and they are usually good at it. What was the context of this comment?

she is trying to portray me as mental, and also is completely agitational, in that she jabbers nonstop no matter whether she knows what shes talking about or not and is taking offense with everything I say even if it is that the children love both their parents

actually studies say (friend with social work degree) not all children are so negatively affected by abuse in the home to be maladjusted. Something like 50% are.<br><br>
But I'd say thanks as its obviously a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> compliment to your mothering skills that even with domestic violence you were able to give your kids enough to balance out that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Pranama, as shaky as stbx's and my mediation went, I'm so glad that we avoided lawyer battles. My stbx didn't even get a lawyer (against the advice of the mediator and me!), but he just felt they were useless. I do have a lawyer, but there has been no need to become adverserial. But we haven't even had our court date yet, so maybe it's too soon to talk. Then stbx might change his mind.<br><br>
But I'm starting to ramble. I think that sucks what the lawyer is trying to do, but it's sounds like bs to me, and hopefully the judge will see that. Ugh. She just epitomizes the bad stereotype of lawyers. Hope the smoke clears soon.
