Went to court...got there early.
My attorney and I went into the court room.
His attorney was there, he wasn't (it was still early).
My attorney and his attorney went into a side room and talked. They came out and sat at tables.
Judge came out.
My attorney asked that the RO hearing be postponed so it could be heard on Feb. 22 along with show cause hearing.
Judge agreed.
The attorneys went back into side room.
My attorney came out and asked it $*#($* is was paying any of the bills or giving me $.
Told her no...just HIS truck payment and HIS loan payment.
She went back into side room.
Came out a few minutes later and asked about house sale and purchases.
She went back into room.
They both came out.
His attorney left.
Mine said his attorney is going to tell him to start sending me $. and and told me what we are asking for for support and what he wants for divorce settlement.
Came home.
It's nice that he doesn't have to show up for court...just can't understand it.
I'm not holding my breath waiting for the check.
Don't expect anything to happen on the 22nd either.
So far they have managed to stall on everything they have done.

The good news is that I'm strong and I'm getting on with my life dispite having to go through this crap.

Feb. 1, 2008 at 9:57 PM You are so right...being weak is what got me in the abusive relationship in the first place and it's what kept me going back...I'm working on a list of all the things I want if I have to sell the house and give him any of the equity. Then I'm going to get my financial records in order to show that I have contributed as much as he has so I should get what I came into this relationship with. Not give him half of what I had when I met him.
