The next step appears to either settle or litigate. The evaluator is to explain his assessment to me next week.
In the meantime I do counseling with my oldest daughter to seek her willing return.
All of this for having words with a woman who wanted nothing but to take my children away. Losing my children to her influence for the next several years because I was frustrated and angry?
I've witnessed my own father, grandfather, etc. rip a stranger who wronged them, get into it with the women in their lives, and yes even yell at their kids. They were successful businessmen and professionals. Today they'd be in jail for this behavior.
I get it anger needs to be controlled with appropriate outlets, but this "punishment" goes well beyond. This is a 'men's' divorce forum. I'm guess I'm learning as men we have to learn to play this game differently or else be that horrible example.
Costly. And sad.
