BM's lawyer threatens DH with harassment restraining order over......nothing?
After the second time DH found out that BM and her fiance were taking the skids to accident scenes during their time on call as volunteer firefighters, he notified BM via email that he would not tolerate this in the future. So once again the skids tell us that BM and fiance had left the skids alone (they are 9 and 11) at the firehouse so they could go on "a call." So Dh went in and (very calmly) told the fire chief that he did not feel it was appropriate for our kids to be exposed to accident scenes or left unattended at the fire house. Dh said that he wanted the chief to be aware, because this was going on "under his watch". Dh explained that he had tried to speak with BM regarding this matter, but had gotten nowhere and that he had already been in contact with our lawyer about this issue. The chief was pretty supportive and told DH that he agreed that minors should in no way be present while the firefighters were on duty, and that he would be speaking to BM and her fiance about this. DH made it clear that he really didn't care to "get them into trouble", he just wanted the chief to be aware so that this wouldn't happen in the future.
So today we get a letter from our attorney essentially responding to BM's attorney. It read, "Dear attorney XYZ. Thank you for your letter, however my client and I do not agree with the facts you have stated in your letter. I do not feel that my client's actions were unjustified or of concern. If you feel that you need to file a harassment restraining order, go ahead. Your client has been advised against this behavior before."
I guess we'll see how this plays out. I can't imagine that she could get a restraining order based on this.....but hey, I never thought that half the stuff that's gone down would. I'm to the point where I just don't care anymore. Let her do what she wants.
