STBX txt msgs "its your fault if children end up in casket"

Unread postby truemort » Sat Oct 14, 2017 9:03 am

NJ STBX is sending text msgs to me basically stating that it will be my fault if children end up in a casket.

The gist of her msgs are that because he car needs maintenance (so she claims)...ived express that i do not have money for her car maintenance (we are mid trial btw but I have been under a pendente lite order since last year to maintain certain things)..

so because i cant afford her car maintenance, her gist is that she will get into an accident and its my fault if kids end up in a casket...

is there any way I can use these text msgs to my advantage?

Technically, I would think i could interpret these types of msgs as some sort of threat or concern for her mental state??

or am i reaching here.....

This is generally why texts are inadmissable. Lack of context.

You might want to read about admissibility of text messages.

Also, whatever you do, don't make yourself look like a jackhole in your responses.

Also, be careful about responding in a way that makes it clear that you are failing to do what is legally required of you.

Consider who has the liability here:
She asserts the car is a grave risk to drive, yet she drives it.

What specifically is the maintenance required to remove this grave risk to the occupants?

the "grave risk" is a fan clutch

200 part + 500 in labor to replace/install.

This issue has existed for over a year.....(with her driving it)..

she is extra "manic" today, so shes flaring up.

I'm not big on saving texts but that's one to save.

Draw a line in the sand, she needs to learn to pay for her own car repairs.

A fan clutch isn't going to cause a crash, she is being over dramatic to make you look bad....in her own head.
the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

I think you're going to drive yourself crazy hanging onto the mumblings of an insane person..... consider ratcheting up your DGAF meter.
