We had court (again) Friday. BM is still a weasel.
Support has gone up again...$22 more each week. I'm not surprised, but I'm still pissed, & SS nearly got himself arrested.
BM told the judge she's filed for disability & she has notes from 2 of her doctors (though she didn't have them at court) that she's turned into the disability office & is getting one more from another doctor. Her oncologist said she doesn't have any cancer, but she has spots on her lungs...whatever that means. She's a smoker. My guess is that's the cause. Another doctor said she can't do any work that makes her over-exhert herself or that leaves her out of breath because of her heart. I can tell you, I have yet to be sitting at my desk & overwork myself to where I'm gasping for breath.
Anyway, because of that, the judge can't assign her any amount for income so it falls on DH now...100%.
The judge gave her 10 days to get copies of the paperwork to the courthouse, though DH said nothing was ever mentioned about what any consequences would be if she didn't. There's nothing in the paperwork about it.
There is something in the paperwork that says "Appeal bond $776.00 secured."
I don't understand court-speak but but DH said the judge told him if he wants to appeal this he has 10 days, & that he'll have to pay $776.00 to do so. WTF???
I'm not sure how to find out if BM gets the paperwork turned in. Even if she doesn't, there's nothing saying anything would change if she didn't, & we don't have $776.00 to hand up for an appeal even if we could verify she didn't.
Both kids were there. SS...with a pocket knife. The deputy lit into his ass as soon as he told him he had it on him. He told him to get it out of his courthouse. There's a giant sign on the front door where you come in...no cell phones, no weapons, etc. When SS was coming back in the building the deputy yelled down the hall (everyone could hear it all) for him to stop & read the sign. SS read it & when he started coming in again the deputy told him to take another minute to read it & pay attention to everything it said. Then he made him read it a 3rd time just to be sure he understood what it meant & asked if he had any questions. LMFAO!
He's so careless & doesn't pay attention to anything. DH said he wished the guy had put him up against the wall & cuffed him & put him in a holding room for the duration of their hearing.
The same deputy came out again, while DH & BM were still in the courtroom & told him if he EVER brings anything like that into his courthouse again, he WILL take him into custody.
It was funny. Usually I'd feel bad for someone. I know he didn't do it intentionally, but he's been to the courthouse as many times as I have. I know he didn't do it intentionally, but at a courthouse, you have to intentionally pay attention to what the fuck you're doing, & he didn't. He walks through life by his own rules (as he's been taught to do), & even DH said, thankfully he's reached a point in life where people are going to point out how ignorant he's being & BM can't step in to protect him.
When we were waiting for the paperwork to be drawn up she did say, "It's okay, baby. We all mess up."
Yeah, that "mess up" could've very well landed his ass in fucking jail & left him with a permanent record. I suppose she'd just go back in & request an increase in support to bail him out.
BM was in an unusually decent mood. Well, toward DH. She didn't make eye contact with ME one time, but I could see her staring at me when she thought I wasn't paying attention. Her & DH were at the window signing the paperwork afterward & DH said something sarcastic to SS. BM giggled & backhanded him in the chest. Then she said, "I guess I'd better watch it. I'll get an assault & battery right here in the courthouse."
Yeah, she makes jokes when it's her. I'd bet everything I own that had he been the one to put his hands on her, she'd have him charged on the spot.
She's lucky I was appreciating her more decent attitude. She has no reason to be putting her hands on my husband. She doesn't get to play with him anymore. Dumb bitch.
I don't even care about the $20 more/week. It's the whole reason behind it that pisses me off. It's just one more fucking time that fucking bitch uses the "poor me" shit to weasel her way out of any responsibility.
Whatever. If SD graduates when she's supposed to we have 20 more months to pay this shit.
