Default Stressed about tomorrow

Not usually nervous about court but feeling stress about tomorrow.

I am not worried about anything bad happening as I submitted proof that the applicants counter claims of contempt were false through email discussions, letter from counsellor contradicting the applicants claim of statements made by counsellor, and a copy of the order that we currently have that shows some of the things applicant claims I am in contempt of are not even in the order, and all she submitted was her affidavit with no evidence.

I do hate leaving the access and details to a judge. I had a long talk with my daughter counsellor today about how my daughter is doing, her recommendations for march break, and her recommendations on how to talk to my daughter right now and how to try and help her through her emotions and stress right now. This whole situation is taking a big toll on her.

I am not really asking a question I guess a little bit of a rant....Just with that things could be different.

Good luck. Court is always stressful. You lose control of decisions that impact your life, in a very major way. If you didn't have stress, that would be a problem.

Did you make offers to settle? Ask for costs?

I did make an offer to settle. I also was trying tonight by email as the applicant wrote to me and seemed interested in trying to work out an agreement but in the end she really wasn't just wanted to make accusations so I had to end the discussion.

I did ask for costs but we are both self rep, and she has no money so I won't get anything. I have won almost every motion I have ever brought forward and never been awarded costs.

Youll be great. Throughout it all youve proven yourself to be the one interested in whats best for your child. Think about her and you will do well. Her mother has only been thinking of herself. Good luck and we'll be thinking of you!!!

Your rant appears to be an even-keeled one and the feelings of stress seem pretty understandable under the circumstances.

Good luck!

So Dadx5 how did it go today? Going to court is never a pleasant experience - I think they go out of their way to make the decor as depressing as possible. A few months ago somebody in here (can't remember who) told me to imagine what's under the judge's robes - if anything lol! It helps to deal with the stress of it all ......

Wishing you a positive outcome!
