Helping pay for our daughters birthday party. My stbx has decided he has more important things to spend our money on than a $150 Birthday party.

He seems to think filing for custody and trying to kick me out of our house is wise and a much better choice than putting our daughter 1st

Umm well if there's no more to the story than what you've written then I'd actually agree with him. A child doesn't need a 150 dollar party and im guessing at this point he feels the money will be better spent filing for custody.

Sounds like you need to throw a cheaper party with your money since you know what he's doing with his.

Umm, I'd skip the party this year and save my money for the lawyer.

I agree. I think you are the one with mixed up priorities.

I just can't shake this feeling that we're missing a big piece to this story.

This is a cheap "facility" party compared to most. One we've been promising her for a year. I can afford it and I will take care of it. He said he would help but got pissed cuz I told him to stop hollering at MY child for putting a birthday card back in the wrong spot on the mantle and decided he's no longer helping.

We are in the early stages of separating and retaining lawyers. He seems to think that even though I do literally everything for our children, he will get custody because his name is on the mortgage.

You might want to save your money. Something tells me that you're going to need it.

I'll be fine, I'm not going to deny my daughter of something just because her dad and I aren't getting along.
