Nope. Can't afford one, and besides that, I don't trust em. I know our family law well enough, as an almost paralegal, and being "in the system" for nearly 10yrs. Also, have a good repore with the judge, but I don't get how, it is ok to do this. I would be a wreck even if an attorney was on it.
Oh, beleive me, the thought has crossed my mind!!!
But is that an invite..lol
I really thought about heading to Oregon, near my grandmother, or to one of the many other states that I have family in. My gosh I could REALLY go anywhere. But would it be better? Ya, a bit I suppose on this issue, but I have other great things here too. I guess, I fight it out, I can't run FROM it, if I move, I want to know I am running TO something.
tear confused. Thoughts that HAVE crossed my mind. I DID move though, the inconvenience isn't there for him. Just me. $ IS a huge issue. Pm me if needed. IDK if I am full of whiney, or just lost at this. I feel like SO much good IS happening....yet...there is this. And balance, is getting, well, hard. I missed the propencity part of life mgmnt...Plus...I only have a month to do SOMETHING....need good nights "sleep on it" I guess.
Oh honey, I am so sorry you have to go through all this crap. That guy should never be allowed around children again. Supervised or not, that right should be taken away! WTF is wrong with this justice system?

I'm sorry about what you're going through -- it's horrible -- but I can't believe you're doing it without an attorney. There might be some finer points of the law and legal procedure that a lawyer could use to nail down your ex.
I agree with lisa on this one Jenn, how can anyone in their right mind even think he has ANY rights where the kids are concerned............is there no way you can get help with the legalities of it all........i dont' know how it works over here, but here if you can't afford it you can get legal aid to help with stuff like this.......cuddle i really feel for ya hon, stay strong.
You are going to have to srot out all the cash issues and moving and what not on your own, I do want to say one thing though that you should think about.
My uncle is attonrey, when he goes to court he HIRES a attorney to represent him.
There is an old adage that says a person who represents themselves has a fool for a client.
trusting them is a matter of finding a good one. Iv had alot of lawyers, some good some bad. hiring one can push the date further off so he has time to prepare your case.
I never enter a court with out an attorney present unless Im a witness to someone else shit.
The fact that attorneys hire each other should speak volumes.
Well, you are right about the attorney issue. I have thought about it, but I know EVERY SINGLE ONE here and, I have also showed at least half of em up in court. There aren't any good family law attorneys here. I DO however, to set minds at ease, consult with the family law facilitator, who IS an attorney, appointed by the court, before I do anything. But an attorney also will not help with the mediators oppinion. Visitation hinges on their oppinion. Pro-family, pro-rehab...blablabla. SO who knows.It will work out, I have kicked his ass a million times in court, I am just getting wore down because I keep having to go through it. I am going to ask that he NOT be allowed to file another action with out prior permission from the court though, for now, it is an option that I have. This is SO soon after the last "no show" that the judge may not allow anything to be heard, aside from the child support issue. It is just wearing on me...
