Hi everyone, so it went smoothly! I guess the prospect of a social worker asking about her FOO issues made her very reasonable. We decided on 50/50 custody and agreed. I was able to add language making it impossible for jailbird to be alone with my kids.

I took her to dinner afterwards (I hadn't talked to her since Jan, so I thought it was appropriate since she behaved so well). We talked a bit. She says she doesn't see OM but still texts with him. That she hates him but still took care of his dog because he asked her to.

She was very afraid I'd go after full custody and that I was going to blast her at the meeting or disagree wantonly. I told her that wasn't my intention, but the texts OM sent seemed to have the intent to make her lose the kids by forcing my hand to go for full custody (at leas that's how I interpreted them). I didn't give her any details but left it at that. She's a bit paranoid, since all she got was second and third hand information. I have been as consistent as I can myself, but she wasn't hearing any of it. She seems calmer now.

We talked about the kids, a bit on the plans for housing for both of us (I avoided specific on finances other than the regular bills), and her plans for a job (she is looking for one - yay!). Now the next part is the tough one - the separation of assets and supports..

But at least the custody is done, and there was no major disagreements. We signed and we're on to the next one!

Thank you for your prayers and thoughts everyone!
