Thanks for the well wishes. They are appreciated. He told me yesterday that he will fight for joint custody. We'll see. I don't really know how he will afford to do that, unless he plans to put a retainer on a credit card. In one breath he tells me he will sign the papers, but in the next he tells me he will never allow me to take our son away from him. I gave generous visitation, but that doesn't seem to matter. I really like my lawyer though. She is smart, no-nonsense, and very definitely out to help me get what I want from this. I definitely did not take him for all he's worth. I struck out any spousal support, I gave him a lot of stuff that he could easily sell and have several thousand dollars to work with, and I took on the house that is going to be next to impossible to sell. I want custody of our son, not for the money but so that I can make sure that I do everything I can to raise him to be a good person, and to protect him from his father's horrible temper. I don't know. I am nervous about the next few weeks.
