As a followup to my "custody issue" question, I think it went well unless I'm missing something.

 Our daughter will live with me, but do the "every other weekend" rotation thing.  Holidays too (rotate).

Dad can see her during the week if I agree on it, but she won't sleep over there during the week.  (In another words, I don't have an issue with him attending her softball games and things of that nature, but she'll only sleep over there every other weekend. 

We haven't even gotten to cs issues or anything like that, that's not what today was about.  This was only infront of a mediator.

Does this sound good, or am  missing something??????????  Thanks.

Yes, I thought that seemed pretty routine.  I was afraid he'd try for "50/50" and I don't want her bounced back and forth like that, especially during the school year.  I could just see the hassle of  everyone trying to make sure she had all her school stuff and everything else as she went back and forth!!  Yikes!!!  

And, I know it's none of my business how big his future apt or house is, (at the moment, he's still living with us), but for us both to have big enough places for the 14 year old (and her 18 year old sister) is pretty darn expensive.  If he lives near by (and for now, I don't see why he won't), he can see her plenty.

Thanks for your reply!

Jun. 3, 2008 at 5:34 PM GOOD JOB!  For the $ Mediation - Bring EVERY Receipt and include college expenses adn if you know of ANY $ he has make sure it is disclosed.  the Mediators will crunch the numbers so it's almost out of your hands.  remember not to be too mean as I found the "nicer" things go there the more money you'll get "on the side" if your daughters shold need it.  Now Go Relax in a nice warm tub, you deserve it.

Jun. 3, 2008 at 10:33 PM That sounds good so far.  I didn't think he would go for 50/50 visitation mainly because that will cut into his  "social life"  or the one he is wanting to have anyway.
