Court Ordered Fine to pay BM..AARRGHH!!
SO is considering taking BM to court to appeal the $6,000 he was ordered to pay for refusing consent for skids passports.
This is due to BM’s blatant lie on the Email she produced to the judge, which states that she would NEVER send skids overseas without his consent. Judge believed her and approved the passports. When they returned from the cruise, 2 months later, BM sent SD overseas to live for the next 2 years. Without discussion with SO or his consent.
She also stated that SO advised her NOT to contact him unless it was a life or death situation. This is inaccurate. SO advised her to only call him in an emergency and to send an email regarding important information. She advised all this to the Judge when she took him to court for the kids passports in Dec 2016. Cruise was in Jan 2017.
BM picks and chooses when she communicates with SO. She didn’t consider it important enough when SD was taken by ambulance to hospital. She left this to SS to inform SO, along with the instructions from herself and SD, not to bother visiting, as he would be refused entry to her room.
She didn’t consider it important to contact SO with regards to her plans to send SD overseas for 2 years. She just sent her. Done.
Once she found out that Child Support was investigating her, she decided to harass SO at work, and sent him emails demanding to know when he was going to pay the $6,000, which isn’t actually due until June. SO just responded “not due til June – don’t harass me at work unless it’s important”.
So she obviously considers the money important (or a matter of life or death) – but sending SD overseas, was NOT important enough to contact SO? Gee, isn’t that funny? She is so damn hypocritical, it’s beyond a joke.
She is hopping mad now that she has to answer to child support for her decision to send SD overseas without SO’s consent. BM is insisting that she is still the primary care giver even though SD is out of the country. She believes she’s still entitled to the money as SD is residing with her grandparents (BM’s parents).
She is fighting to continue to receive 100% child support for SD and SO is challenging this. SO wants to continue to financially support SD – he just wants to make sure it goes to whomever is caring for her 100%. He is also getting legal advice about bringing SD back to Australia.
SO has kept all communication documented.
Has anyone had anything like this before? What do you all think about SO appealing the $6,000? Does he even stand a chance of winning this?
