My tale began on other posts. I'll post the link, but right now I am at a low point.
Journaled, read the List, been Super Dad (or, so I thought). Had a temporary hearing a few days ago asking for primary of S10 and residence.
I did not even get joint, and am out of the house. As my atty said, it is a broken and biased system. Now, he probably would not have said that if it had gone the other way.
So, licking my wounds. Exhaling. My plan B was that I would be out of the house, so I had already lined up a rental. Glad I did. Getting stuff out this weekend.
The judge ordered us to mediation for custody starting next week. He said that we need to work it out.
So, my plan is to fight for more time. I have all of the documentation. I am not falling on my sword or quitting.
I experienced first hand that it comes down to money, lies and smear by the other side. Couple that with the built in "boob" bias and a SAHM who worked very little (with an advanced degree), and there you go....
OK, I don't expect any pity party. You guys are great at the 2x4's. I will dust myself off and fight on. Right now, I just feel like I got hit by a train.
