Lets get a Divorce so we can get more Money from Welfare! Update
They have mediation on Monday and are supposed to come to an agreement on custody of their oldest. If they can't then the judge will decide for them the Monday after. I hope she wins this...
That is what my sil's soon to be ex said to her. They separated a year ago when their dd was 1 1/2 and she was pregnant with their second. She's been wanting to work it out but he's being super flaky, flip flopping around. One minute saying yes they'll get back together then filing for divorce and suing for custody of their 2yo the next.
His latest scheme was on Valentines day. He told her he had a surprise for her. She was all excited! So he calls and tells her that he still loves her and wants to be with her and be a family again. *She swoons* Then he says "But I still want a divorce and custody of the oldest." "We can still be together but this way we'll get more money from Welfare." His reasoning is, she gets 650 for both kids. But if they split the kids, they'll each get 520 and he won't have to pay child support.
Welfare fraud at it finest....She said hell no, I'll see you in court then hung up on him. What a shitty Valentines day :-(
