I'm not saying we should try The Purge, but I'm also not saying we shouldn't.
I am literally about to snap, and it seems like a good resolution to the situation at hand. DH filed for Contempt of Court against Crazy, for the constant criticism, parental alienation against SD13, and basically just constant abuse/messaging to us that is not sustainable. Crazy, not knowing what contempt of court is or even how life works, said "I'm filing for contempt of court against you also". And apparently did? DH literally did nothing to Violate the CO. She always just said "you did this and you don't care about the kids so I'm filing for COC". Anyway, we haven't even gotten served or seen whatever shit show she submitted (you have to list what section of the CO is being violated and show proof) but today DH had a status conference for his filing, and that's when the Judge noted they had competing COC's against each other, so they would merge them..and assign a Guardian ad Litem (for a 14 and 17yr old), and Crazy announced she was also going to file for a custody review.
Gah!!!! Several things. It hasn't even been 2yrs since the last review so we don't know why CS would even entertain this since there hasn't been a major life Incident to spur a review.
But, Child support attended today and said they have been "letting too many things slide", so they were attending...
DH makes $30K more than he did at the last review.
It's so frustrating that all of this is in retaliation for DH filing for COC, and because we are currently in Italy buying a very modestly priced vacation home (that will mostly come out of my salary). Crazy is jealous and thinking if we can buy a house in Italy, we should pay more. Interestingly enough, despite all of her complaints and criticisms of our terrible parenting, she never asks for more custody.
DH has been livid all day, it has definitely ruined the day (it's also been a nightmare closing on this house which as made it 10x worse) and it just sucks. He's also completely over SD. She has shown zero interest, doesn't message him or respond to snapchats of the house, and DH said, quote "he's sick of that ungrateful little sh*t". He says she doesn't give a shit about us, only texts when she wants something, and is so brainwashed by crazy she only wants her, and he's over of it. We talked about her bday coming up in June and he said we are definitely not having a party- she made it clear last year she doesn't appreciate it, because we are the only house who has had big parties for her each year, but she said if she had to choose she would have a party at Crazy's because "mom has always had parties for me". Literally not even one time. DH said that I've done too much for her and need to stop because she doesn't deserve it. I mean, I agree. For some reason, even though DH and I obviously only want what what's best for her and may make minor parenting mistakes, it doesn't matter- Crazy can do the worst of the worst, but as long as she has no rules and coddles SD, she's the better parent.
Done. If this bitch gets more Child support I'm going to scream.
