I went yesterday for our "custody orientation" to meet with him and his lawyer and mine to try to reach an agreement. like you I want my family back and I do not want my children around his new gf. I got very emotional. I thought I would be okay being in the room and discussing it but I wasnt. I feel like a jerk for being so upset about it but they are my babies and I dont want to give them up. We came to a temporary agreement and will reconvene. Good luck! I hope everything works out well for you!

Our mediator was actually really gifted in doing his job--getting us to a final agreement. 

They basically put you in one room and him in another and go back and forth. 

They're really good at telling both of you what a judge is likely to allow and not. There's not a whole lot of emotion or fighting or anything. 

Best of luck!! 
 

What are the issues you're working out?

Thank you ladies!! I am going to really put some good thought into all this. It's going to be hard but I know I can do this and I will stand my ground on what I want. I will not give in to him anymore!!
