Court Soon ...

Thu, 08-05-2010 - 2:27pm

I wanted to give you ladies an update (copying this from another board too btw!)
I met with my lawyer again this morning. (I actually overslept! lol .. For those of you who don't know I work nights until 1a .. and I haven't been sleeping well and I was suppose to be there at 10a and I work up at 1015a ... lucky I live close and I got there at 1030a and he still saw me!) Anyhoo ...
Going to court within the next two weeks probably as early as next week!
I am so nervous about everything. This is for the 'injunction' (I think I am using the right legal term lol) to get the kids back with me temporarily and sort out a arrangement for shared time with Dh. and of course keep them from going to school up where my mom lives. And hopefully this will be as far as it goes legally I am hoping Dh will wake up and realize we can sort this out if he just works with me. Otherwise this could get expensive. Ugh!
I am having to do some creative financing right now to come up with the money I need to get things going.
It makes me sick how much I have to pay and I don't really have anybody to talk to on it? How do I find out if I am getting a good deal. It sounds like I am .. Can I go back and ask for them to work for less or is that not appropriate to do? LoL .. anybody have experience with lawyers or divorce lawyers I could use some advice on that end.
Argh I hate money! I am not as worried about the retainer fee I have the money to do that, it's the hourly fees for the lawyer they seem really high! Eep!
all of this is just happening so fast and I can't tell anybody right now since Isabella's bday is TOMORROW and I don't want to rock the boat or get in a fight before her bday. Dh is still not staying here. I feel like I am going to burst I dont like hiding things or keeping things inside but its necessary! Argh! :(
The whole situation is making me so anxious and I can hardly focus on work. I thankfully have the next 5 days off after today for Isabella's bday and I am going to try and enjoy! and most of all make sure she has a GREAT bday weekend! (: I'm glad I have the distraction of the party and the weekend right now at least. It will keep me from being a total wreak! I havent cried all day today though. I am trying to stay strong and I've been talking to alot of friends and getting some good prospective. (: I just have to keep strong. Not always as easy as it is said though .. lol .. Keep praying for me and my kids. Thanks for all the support! xx You girls are amazing!

oh and btw nothing on FB I am on and off there right now .. Dh wont be served until Wends. Thanks dolls. Not that I think any of you would! xx oh and if you have a ? or don't know whats going on I will fill in the blanks just ask! LoL

Alyson,


I hope everything went well with the lawyer this week and Isabella had a fabulous birthday. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope you and DH will be able to come to an agreement that works for all parties involved.


Please KUP girl!! (((HUGS)))

Thanks girls! The meeting went well. We have already started moving in a better direction and I should be all moved out by the end of the month and settled in my new house by the beach! :) I can't wait! It's bitter sweet. I'm sad to leave my home for the last 5 years (the home I brought 2 babies home too!) I mean it's where my family started and I am sad to leave without my entire family intact but at the same time I am excited to start this new chapter in my life and start moving forward. It's scary and exciting ... I'm just ready to be done with this move. So I can start dealing with other things.


I will certainly KUP as things progress. Thanks for the concern!

Hi Alyson,



I was just thinking of you and wondering how the last month has been for you? Hope you're enjoying your new place! :-)

hey Hon .. thanks for thinking about me and asking!



I am enjoying the new place. I am glad to be moved out and Im starting to get settled in. It's been a busy & hectic month though. Still having a lot of drama with my EX and my family. They are basically blocking me from seeing the kids. I wasn't able to afford the lawyer or legal fees .... I am looking into optinos to get a lawyer for less or some legal aid. No luck yet. Things haven't been working out well on that end. And Im sick of dealing with my EX and my family thinking they are in charge and can do whatever they want with my kids. It's terrible! :( But I am trying to keep positive and just keep focusing on what I need to do to get my kids back in my house. :-/
