court with BM1 today
Fdh is still there because she wouldn't budge on him getting make up time. But they were in mediation. For TWO HOURS, and settled some stuff. She had a new lawyer today and I'll bet he's done after this too.
*fdh is not in arrears.
*fdh does, in fact have electricity andheat in his house.
*SD does have a bed
*we do own a working vehicle.
So overnight visits were reinstated. But bm got one little thing. We have to put a bedrail on SD s bed.. bm insists she rolls out of bed and is "afraid" SD will get hurt at our house.
She really wanted the probate officer to agree SD needs her own bedroom at our house, even though she shares at her ownhhouse, where she lives. All week... probate officer and lawyer looked at her like she was nuts.
There was a whole song and dance about extracurricular activities. Fdh said he was more than happy to have SD in some as long as bm discusses them with him. But he pointed out he is way more concerned that SD cant read so maybe they should invest in a tutor instead.
He's getting two phonecalls a week. Bm insisted she has no phone, that she only has a state phone and she shouldn't be required to waste her precious minutes letting SD talk to fdh. So fdh will be getting SD a track phone. Its in the co that if the phone is list stolen or damaged on BMS time she will be replacing it within a week.
So all that's left is fdh getting his make up time for all the skipped visits which had to be brought to the judge because bm started bawling and refusing every option given for make up time.
