I was going to hold off on D due to just getting out of a 3 year legal fight with my exw which left me kind of broke. However, IHS has been horrible due to the tension In the house around my kids. I asked STBXW if I can take to kids to Myrtle Beach the week after Xmas. I was told flat out “no”. So I retained my lawyer earlier this week and she did the same. So it is on, D number two now underway. STBXW has taken the kids everywhere she has gone during IHS. I have not had a day alone with them in 5 weeks. She took them thanksgiving and I’m sure she will be taking them for Xmas. Custody will be the biggest battle, not so much money. It’s sad to see it come to an end after almost 13 years, but in the end, I think it will be best for everyone involved. I am looking forward to being alone and on my own for a while. It’s something I miss.
