For those who had to fight, long did your custody 'battle' process take? From filing to judges decision. Dh is in the little of one. FC did an investigation to give recommendations to BPs. He met with the investigator two months ago, is awaiting a reply and is getting antsy.
DH is still waiting for FC recommendations on custody. Then the court will set a trial date. It has now been three months since DH and BM met with the FC investigator. And 5 since he filed. SS5 met with investigator the week (or two ish) after they did, so that part is done too. Bm has made five false reports regarding abuse (all unfounded) and has failed a drug test. Dh's lawyer followed up around the third week of April. Investigator said her report would be completed by the end of April....
But Dh dropped off another false CPS report (made by BM) and documentation regarding a unrelated arrest warrant active for BM (in another county for harassing her boyfriends work place - 28 calls in a 6 hour period - his boss called police three or four different days). Dh has been working with a detective on harssment and (possible) false report charges against BM. Dh thinks that's what slowed down the process. Hoping to hear something soon.
SS5 has been saying that BM acts 'crazy' (he said she yells allot on the phone and gave some other examples), his been praying that she 'gets help' (Dh asked why he says that and ss said 'she says you need help but I don't think so'), and saying he doesn't want to go back there. .... it's hard. His lawyer said all we can do is wait. Its a stressful waiting process.
Oh and, we started looking into counseling for ss5. And Dh will have him start that as soon as custody is done.
Thanks for those who have read.. needed to vent.
