Just found out our final court date will be next Friday. Ironic, it's 2 years to the date that stxwh left me for ow for the first time....4 days after Dday. :-(
As much as I am ready for the end of the hellish roller coaster, I am mouring the end of the life we had. 15 years ago we were in love and pursuing our dreams of raising a family together. It's still very hard to believe that stbxwh's dreams have changed from being a dad with a family around him, to living with ow and living like he's 25 and single. Together it was always us against the world and everything would be okay as long as we were together. Now, it's just me trying to raise our children so they aren't damaged by the circumstances they had no control or affect on. It's going to be a sad day.
As I deal with my emotions, can anyone tell me what the final court date is like? We never had a temporary hearing because stbxwh started paying c/s voluntarily and we were just interested in moving things along. So, we've never had a court date. What happens? Do either of us have to say anything? I have an attorney, but stbxwh has opted to go unrepresented....he's not an idiot, we are both just trying to work together and be fair. I'm not attacking him and he knows it. I only have an attorney because I purchased my own home and car since this mess started I wanted to ensure these items stay mine with stbxwh having no input. I also want to be distanced legally from stbxwh financial mess. Anyway, any experiences to share?
