Fortunately, our IRL names are different. I never took his last name, praise the gods. I will be the plaintiff in the long haul. The only grounds he has on which to file is "incompatibility". In order to go through, I have to "admit" that in my answer. If I deny, he has no option to prove it. It's gone.
My counterclaim will be for different (not adultery) grounds, that I can prove if he denies. So basically, his claim is dismissed, and mine will be the ones standing.
It still sucks. I had made peace with our sep agreement. Then MOW and her BH file for dissolution, and suddenly he's rushing for the courthouse. He is a freaking puppet. What a moron. He is going to spend a shit ton in lawyer's fees for a contested divorce.
After filing, he was all friendly and chatty yesterday. I told him to screw off.
I have a new IC that I already like more than the old one. Yay. Divorce will now take as long as I can humanly (and ethically) stretch it out so I keep the IC.
