 I wish I had some advice for you! My ex was/is a douche, but thankfully our divorce was very civil. Do you have a lawyer? Do you make sure any issues are documented? I guess my only advice would be to try to keep the kids out of it as much as possible. HUGS!

I do not yet have a lawyer.Im still trying to find a place to live.All the big issues are documented by the police dept. We live in a small town and there are only two judges here.We have been before both.In on case him getting 6months in jail for assulting me.The only thing he can really say bad about me is that I have depression.But I no he will try anything and everything.true or not.just so frusterating.

Well, him trying to get an order and it being denied shows he is playing games. keep that in the forefront of your mind.  The court will see it too.  Try to build a good support system around you, friends, family, maybe a support group for wo,men going through divorce and us here online.

You mentioned he is a narcissist so he is never going to admit to any wrong-doing, he is going to try to deflect it back on you and anyone else he can.

 document everything that happens for your own records so that you can use that in court if you have to. good luck to you.

Document everything like others have said, if you have a digital tape recorder, tape everything he says to you, and take photos. Hugs to you mommie.

 Hello Aprilmcgraw, welcome to the group and we are glad to have you here.

  I am really sorry that you and your children are going threw this. Sounds to me like if the judge denied him an oop the granted you one then he must be way out there. The best advice I can give you is document, document, document. Keep ya self out of any kind of trouble. Things are already in your favor. Please keep us updated and remember we are here for you to vent and maybe get some good advice. Good luck and Great big hugs to you and your children.group hug
