My STBXH filed for D and in his petition he is requesting that I pay for his attorney fees. We have not assets to split. The only thing we have to settle on are custody and child support.
I moved on October 2nd. I moved 2 1/2 hours away to my parent's home. In every communication I've had with him I've said let me know when you want to see/visit with DS. My attorney has advised that I should not hand over DS to my STBX until we have a signed temporary agreement in place. In the meantime he has not given me a dime and he has not come to see his son. He says "you took my son" and "we will be reunited" but he has made no effort to see his son. He says that visitation in my parent's home is "biased" time. In the meantime DS has had two teeth come in and he is starting to pull himself up in the crib and play pen. He is standing!!!
For the temporary time sharing agreement I have agreed to every other weekend visitation with overnights. He has stated the he wants the baby for a full week, every other week....so essentially a 50/50 split. He has never spent more than 4 hours alone with his own son, but he is asking for this and I think his parent's are behind it so they can watch DS during the day while STBX is at work.
My attorney has made a 3rd request for his financial affidavit and we still haven't received it. No temporary agreement until we get that and child support in place.
On Monday my attorney filed the response to his petition. Yesterday his attorney submitted a request for discovery documents. Doesn't that seem ridiculously early?
I don't know what STBX is thinking...perhaps he thinks there will be a court battle for custody and I will end up paying for his attorney fee, but I wish we could avoid all of this crap.
I'm also really bothered by the fact that he hasn't made any attempt to see his son. It's mind boggling. I think it's part of the NPD...he wants to say that I kept his son from him for X amount of time. I couldn't live without seeing my son. If the roles were reversed I'd be camped out at my inlaws house. This is nuts.
