I found out Friday that our 22 yr old will be called as a witness in our trial this week.
This bothers me a bit.I do understand he will be there to confirm what I am saying.I just feel bad for him as he detests his father.They have had no contact in years (his fathers choice).
Even though he is an adult he's still my boy and I just hate that he has to go through this.

I was told by my attorney that most judges in this state will not allow it. My ex tried this stunt also (I am assuming that your STBX is calling him as a witness?)

No, actually it's my attorney.
I have solely paid my son's college tuition and living expenses the last four years. My child has had no contact with him for years. I think he just wants him to confirm this.
STBX is claiming the money spent on my child was partially his and wants reimbursement.

Is your son ok with testifying? As long as he is it is ok. If there was a court hearing in my case right now my oldest would jump at the chance to testify!

I would think this matter can be best verified by financial records rather than your child testifying. I assume there is a paper trail of tuition and living expenses and equally a paper trail of any "payments" from him to you.

This would be stronger evidence than testimony, I am thinking.

I thought the same as well and inquired about it.
They would prefer him there in person.
Maybe something more?
They do realize he is in school several states away.They must feel it is important.

Sorry but I can't answer your question. How does DS feel about testifying?

He doesn't seem to mind.Getting him back is a pain as he just went back to school last week.
We haven't seen or heard from STBX in a few years and no one is looking forward to it.
