I am kind of missing the custody board about now because I don't know how this really fits here.

As a divorce laywer, I am very curious about what he said and what the judge's reasons were for the change in custody.

It was all very messed up and nothing about it was typical.

My situation is a little different from yours being that my ex & I technically share joint custody - however, due to the economy and the fact that I had to move an hour away from him - and he was the one w/the stable job etc. - they live a majority w/him right now - and yes, it definitely sucks :smileysad: He is also a control freak - typical narcisisst, womanizer etc. But yes, they do continue to find women to fall into their trap & fulfill their needs - at least for a little while....

So I feel for ya & I know what you are going through - it's very tough & hard - and people don't realize how often kids are pretty much awarded to the dad's or at least the parent w/the most money & buying power. But in your situation - it sounds like he was probably just consumed w/fighting you & "winning" the battle - and less about actually raising his kids. So in due time, I am sure he will grow weary - he will see the gf isn't up for the challenge - and you will prob end up custody at least half of the time of your kids.
