BM Going on Vacation for "Emotional Support" but Can't Pay Her Bills - Someone Help Me Out Here!
Soooo before getting into a huge argument with SO this weekend about...what else, the damn DIVORCE...he gave me a little update on the latest BM scam.
A little background first:
When SO and BM separated almost 2 years ago, SO was a little unprepared and not only was he not allowed in the house (the house HE pays a mortgage on that is also in HIS name and BM has never once contributed to) but he also was unable to get money from his bank account as a cushion. When he informed BM he no longer wanted to be married to her she went ballistic and left him an hour north where they were away for the weekend and took his car leaving him there alone. Luckily they were at a place where he knew some people and took one of their cars back home where he stayed with a friend for the night. The next morning he went to the bank in the morning as soon as it opened to get some cash. Once he reached the counter to withdraw money the teller said, "I'm sorry sir but there is no money left in this account." He looks over at the drive through window and who does he see out there??? BM of course! The bitch drained that account SECONDS before he could get anything, took about $10,000 AND his guitar (which has never been seen again). So luckily SO had another account with some money in it so he was ok for a little while until he could iron things out with the lawyers etc.
In the meantime BM took that money and went on vacation to Florida, then she went to Arizona to see family and then finally to California. So of course this has come up in the midst of all this court/mediation drama and SO wants to know...what happened to this money that you STOLE? The response from her lawyer was that she used it to go on vacation for "emotional support!" WOW. REALLY??? I'm going to need a lot of emotional support for having to deal with all this divorce crap myself so I'm thinking I could just steal some money from my parents...I am definitely entitled to it. Well she has also been crying poor house saying she can't pay for mediation, no money...she can't afford the cable/electric/any utility bill in the house...no money. She can't pay her phone bill, can't live the way she needs to...no money. This is very interesting because as I mentioned in the last blog, SO paid ALL of these ridiculous bills longer than he should have. She gets temporary alimony PLUS she doesn't pay the mortgage at the house either so where is this moeny going. Well SO just caught wind that BM is going across the country AGAIN in April for a week! So how is it that she can afford flights to all these places yet cannot manage to help with mediation etc? Oh because she is going for "emotional support."
I cannot believe this...it seems so wrong. Anyone been through this before? It seems ludacris that a judge would consider this as emotional support but not hold her accountable for any of the bills she insists she cannot pay and demands for my SO to cover?? My SO is bullshit.
What do you guys think? What can he do???
