Some of that's been happening here, where some of Narcissistic Perv's shortcuts and general not-doings are coming to pass and ...there's no one to bail him out in those meetings!
He tried to go after me for custody and made noise about DD going to live "there" and it's just not going to happen, no matter how tired and stressed and poor we get!
How could a man who snuck out in the middle of the night and then wrote his 9 year old a "dear John" letter without the mother knowing, think he would be given "physical custody"?
There are people telling me that this is done sometimes as a way to try to avoid paying more support money.
I wish you luck, Fly.
I had two mediation meetings so far and am told there will be four or five, for what it's worth. One went horribly and the second one I stood my ground a little more, as did my L...and the karma bus came because Perv got in trouble for some stuff he wanted credit for!
