She filed her own paternity packet almost a week ago, and we still haven't been served with the papers yet. I'm starting to think that either the fee deterred her or she was too dumb to realize she needs to go to the sheriff's department to pay them $40 to have them serve DH with the papers. Either way it's starting to look like nothing's going to happen because she only has two more days to contest and we definitely should've gotten something by now. So if we haven't gotten anything by Wednesday then DH will call the courthouse to see what to do next.
DH had a job interview today that went really well. He also got a phone call from another company that he applied to, as well as an interview scheduled for Sunday. I'm very hopeful about all of this, because I know DH is a hard worker when he wants to be.
The title is kind of a joke, kind of not. Some of you may know that DH and I are in the process of taking BM to court for a time-sharing CO. We had to pay $320 to file the paperwork and issue a summons to BM. She finally decided she was going to respond, so she filled out her paperwork and went down to the courthouse. She texted DH "You suck." He called her, like a dumba**, to find out what she was talking about.
On top of all of the stress DH and I are under because of BM's crazy sh-t and going to court, DH got fired from his job on Friday. Long story short he had to go to the hospital on Tuesday and he told his boss, boss was fine with it. DH goes back to work on Wednesday, boss doesn't say anything. Thursday was the holiday, and then when he went to work Friday boss let him work for four hours before sending him home.
BM is a wacka-do. She told DH that she actually is going to contest the paternity packet, which isn't all that surprising. Then she said she wants SS every other weekend, or one weekend a month, whichever is more convenient for her. Whatever.
Update: BM called DH a "fool" for filing papers to take her to court. She proudly asserted that she has loads of court experience, because she drove her exboyfriend to court nearly every Monday when he was trying to get custody of his daughter. She is completely convinced that this whole thing won't end well for DH, even though she herself said that the mother of her ex's child moved out of state while the court proceedings were going on, and guess what? The judge made her move back. Also, BM still claims she will have nothing to do with court, she won't even show up to the hearing.
Update: She just texted DH at work. "You're a liar" was all she said. We know from past experience that if he doesn't say anything back she'll keep texting/calling until she gets what she wants. I don't know why she feels the need to keep bothering him when she already said she wouldn't let him see his son. He isn't going to respond, we're just going to save any texts she sends for court.
I just need to get this stuff off my chest because I carry DH's worries around a lot with no one to talk to.
DH and BM were never married. They've gone by a verbal agreement about visitation with SS, and so far it's worked okay although if you've read my other posts you know BM is a massive b*tch. Anyway, last night BM told DH that she's moving about three states away. He asked her, "Can I get it in writing that you will let me see my son when you leave?" She said "Nope." According to her, DH has never done a single thing to help SS *eyeroll* and she doesn't care if he ever sees his son again.
EDIT: Wow I did not expect so many negative reactions to this post. I thought people on here could read it, laugh, and move on with their day. That's what I would do. I am not asking for advice in this blog, don't expect me to want to read yours.
BM struts around like she's God's gift to mankind, so I take secret pleasure when she falls on her face. Which is a lot. This past month she did something so stupid that I have to share.
