January 2007

somewhere in there I lost one of my kids

december was a busy month... got through the last hearing plus aftermath and the holidays. still have legal mop-up to do.

happy new year.

my ex-husband did not attend the hearing. the judge decided my requests were not reasonable and made my lawyer present my case as if my ex was in the room. she eventually decided to recalculate alimony and child support based on imputed wages for the ex, so I was successful in getting the court to recognize that he's underemployed by choice. the judge then proceeded to calculate new support amounts, and reduced child support by $100 per month.

when someone can't parent....

I'm faced with a dilemma.

I have her address, her phone number, her work address. I've seen a picture of her house. I even know her professional specialty and that she has a jacuzzi.

she's a counselor, an addictions therapist. this I find ironic. I've chuckled off and on about it since I dug up the info earlier today.

yet it angers me. here is a woman who should know better than to do what she's already been a party to.
