HIS ATTORNEY DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO to win
My bad word husband admitted to restraining, hitting walls, threatening to strangle me to death and for my poor son hitting him 11 times, on several occasions, intimidating, screaming, and making derogatory comments. He admitted but is a changed man. No witnesses, just him stating people had mentioned a change in him. The judge asked him if he apologized to me. He said yes. Required classes, therapy, anger management, ect. for him but is allowing unsupervised joint custody.
This is after his attorney made up complete bull on the stand, which I denied all of. That jerk didn t support any of these accusations when getting on the stand. Complete BULL.
The attorney said, you re using your son to get to move away. You want to run away with your son to start a new life, ect That is why I didn t sign the original settlement that allowed me to take my son away with joint custody, sure. I was so irked by my husband allowing the attorney to say these unjust comments about me so I asked him this morning if he believed that BULL and he responded you ll have to speak to my attorney. I said at least I will leave this divorce with integrity. He said MY ATTORNEY DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO. Sure to WIN a case. There are no winners here, buddy.
Then I wanted to add a county to the list of acceptable counties where we can take our son in case I needed to move in with my brother. He said yes. His attorney said no. I said he didn t have a spine and he wouldn t cooperate. Now I feel bad and this will get shoved in my face in court only to open a new can of worms! He is on the phone with his attorney right now. My attorney will modify the orders.
The only positive outcome is that I said my peace and if anything happens to our son now (heaven forbid) it is on the judge. I can tell my son years from now that I did everything in my power even though it cost me about ten thousand dollars and my job. The financial outcome would have been so much better before I fought and a small part of me thinks that I should have backed down. I feel complete peace that I did the right thing, but am so angry that the S2BX would stoop to this level. What a display of deceitfulness!
Re:HIS ATTORNEY DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO to win incoherentlonghorn: Oh and my favorite part is when the S2BX had to say that I never did anything hurtful to either of them, but clearly that doesn't count in court unless my husband "intend"ed to kill me. And I'm not claiming I didn't have an attitude at times, because I did. Hold on, why am I comparing myself to him...that is simply unacceptable.
In fact, lets give him a free pass and opportunity.
I look into my sons eyes and I am complete and blissful. I think of going through this divorce for months and wonder if I can hold up.
Re:HIS ATTORNEY DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO to win galil: Just hope it wont take 2 years like mine has.
I was married for 5 months and my ex who left me for a doper kid felt entitled for the most amazing things.
when lawyers are involved there is no telling what or how the outcome will be. As far as courts go Fair is just some made up word.
My ex wanted to have it all so called FAIR and while she was claiming she just wants it al fair she is breaking into my house stealing more garbage she forgot to take from me. Oh yah and the things she came back for were clearly in no way shape hers to take.
Fair has nothing to do with it at this point :-\
Re:HIS ATTORNEY DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO to win incoherentlonghorn: I remember reading about the doper kid...lucky her. I'm sure your standards are a tad higher! I hope it gets easier to get ripped to pieces in court. It was fun arguing with his attorney, he was sharp, but not out of my league. I just need similar representation.
I just learned firsthand, fairness is impossible. That was my last thread of hope that this man would change into something better. It was such a nice disillusion. I cried for three days and just stopped. It is now amusing and my view is completely different. It was like a death.
-Not meaning to harp on my attorney but,
My attorney wants to be ethical, so I m shopping around for a new one. She didn t prep me, he was coached, she won t tell me what actions I can take to counter his attorney s argument. Lets just do nothing till we go to court again. Lets just not do anything to counter the arguments or minimize damage like we did last time, since that was so successful. I am pissed and ready to go for two years, since my heart no longer has hope. In fact it is kind of enjoyable to consider inflicting pain on him at this point although, I m sure occasionally it will hurt. Honestly, not for too long as the cost benefit will dissipate.
His attorney is already opposing the judges orders. Shoving bills on me that he is ordered to pay, although I ve heard this is normal and laughed. I want an attorney with strategy. Several family members and friends are rallying and are giving me thousands as graduation presents to support my sons wellbeing. Beginning of May I graduate and I will have an enormous excess of money dedicated just for him. The S2BX has officially been disowned. My father stopped the direct debits from his account for all of the S2BX's bills yesterday. I am so proud! It s great! I get to cancel his gas card today. FUN, FUN, FUN.
Anyone know any pit bulls around Austin? I need Michael s book! I hope you have an express delivery arrangement. OR downloading is fast. Thanks.
