» Adrianime - 14-07-28 12:56 -- Sad Hug
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 12:56 -- I'm sorry
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:55 -- It all gets very complicated and frustrating. Undecided
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:54 -- In other words, simply by my own actions I might've alienated them from me. Or, at least one of them.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:52 -- I personally feel that there is some parental alienation going on, but I don't *know* that he is doing that. There could be parental alienation simply because I am the one who initiated the divorce..
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 12:49 -- Yeah. I doubt his behavior towards you would be heavily considered unless you can show that it could be harmful to the kids.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:48 -- In the end, I just want to have good relationships with my kids, no matter how things turn out.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:48 -- I try very much to be, but I'm not perfect.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:47 -- I hope so too. I just know that in telling my side of the story, it is (whether I mean it to or not) of course going to look better on me. One is always the hero of their own story. I necessarily CAN'T, as in I think it is impossible, for me to be completely objective about it.
» Hobbitgirl - 14-07-28 12:45 -- I certainly hope it works out in your favor. I think you'd do a much better job from what you've told us. Smile
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:45 -- Proving it, though. I don't know. Might be hard to do so.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:45 -- I've brought it up plenty. We're going to discuss how the hearing will be handled in the coming weeks. So maybe it will come into play then.
» Hobbitgirl - 14-07-28 12:44 -- You've brought that up right? I'd suspect if you were able to prove that it would make a big difference
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:44 -- And I don't know that they would deem being with him as "unsafe" - I think he is controlling and emotionally manipulative, but I don't know how that kind of thing factors in. Undecided
» Hobbitgirl - 14-07-28 12:43 -- But they are going to look into who they feel is more competent more.
» Hobbitgirl - 14-07-28 12:43 -- As long as the household they want to be in is deemed safe.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:43 -- Yeah.
» Hobbitgirl - 14-07-28 12:43 -- After a certain age they do take a kids wants into account
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 12:42 -- I wouldn't think he would have more of a right to the kids than you. I don't to how much weight the child's preference has if the home is not abusive or stressed.
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 12:40 -- It's such a personal situation that it wuold be hard to not take it personally. But when you are at the mercy of the legal system sometimes you really just have little control.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:25 -- If the ruling does go in his favor, I'm going to try and not think of it as a judgment against me. Rather just that the judge saw things differently than I do. Undecided
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:17 -- I don't know if a judge would care about that or not, but as you said... Texas Undecided
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:16 -- And that one is honestly just silly. Because however much I do not want to go to church and believe it is not good for children, my kids are free to go if they'd like. I give them the choice. Hell, I would even drive them there if they asked.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 12:15 -- Oh yes, he knows. I've thought of that too. There's any number of things he might say. that being one of them.
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 12:07 -- apostasy*
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 12:06 -- Does your ex know about your "apostacy" (I think that is the right word?) Could he use that against you in a custody battle? Given how Texas might be...
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 11:52 -- It just depends. There's a lot of different schedules that could be arranged. Here, the standard arrangement is a 1st, 3rd, 5th weekend for the non-primary parent as well as the whole month of July. Of course, there are allowances for holidays in there as well.
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 11:44 -- Would that be the outcome of you getting "primary" custody?
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 11:44 -- My friend growing up did weekends with his dad and weekdays with his mom
» Adrianime - 14-07-28 11:42 -- Sorry, an emergency came up. I'm back now
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 11:05 -- I get to a certain point where the emotions are just too much and then they sort of "shut off" for awhile to give me a break.
» Escape Artist - 14-07-28 11:04 -- I just don't know.
