Looks like the dissolution sticks, as is, and I can relax! Woo Hoo!
Now that is done, I will be calling XMIL in the next few days for the last time to let her know this changes nothing between her and the kids and that she is welcome in my home any time. She will never come (too elderly, too far to travel), but I want to at least make the offer so she understands this is between me and her d-bag, juvenile son and I don't hold anything against her.
ETA: I keep hearing the "Ding dong the witch is dead" song from the Wizard of Oz in the back of my brain, but the wording is changed to "Ding dong the dick is dead..." Where THAT came from I have no idea!

This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man ~ Shakespeare, Hamlet
ETA, having been appealed all the way to the state supreme court, all I can say is YAY!!!!
