I've been on ivillage form about 12 years now, from married, to Trying to conceive, to adoption, divorce, to getting married again, Now her I am, after being remarried for 7 years dealing with custody issues and I am devastated. I have two children with my ex and he lives 2 hours away. My son is nearing 12.5 and for the last two years ex has been pushing for DS to live with him. I’ve been saying no. My DS is adopted and happens to be an amazing athlete, like scholarship material. Exh is obsessed with soccer, so therefore now my son is. And whatever sport he chooses to participate in, he dominates. My my husband is parenting by proxy through my son. Total ego-maniac. Now he’s taking me to court, over this whole summer, forget my 11.5 year old daughter apparently- she does NOT want to go!!! I have the advantage, he’s background is not great. BUT, we’ve been trying mediation and it’s clear to me my son wants’ to “try” living with his dad and what can I do?. My lawyer and I are going to make a contract with a safety net in case my son’s grade’s tank or something.
