My lawyer has terrible comments on the online thing. I didn't know this until a year after I had retained him and he asked me if I had ever checked it. Then I was curious.

I'd really be very specific insofar as to what your expectations are and put it to the lawyer.

My lawyer does not offer free 1/2 hr consultations (as far as I know most do not).

Only if you are dumb enough to put the threat in writing.

Default Can anyone say something to calm me down

Hi,

I've reached out to a number of civil lawyers, waiting to hear back. I am not eating or sleeping. Total blind side with this tort.

Can someone tell me something to calm me down.

I am thinking get the tort claim severed. then have the kids swear affidavits as to what really happened and use them in civil court. They will tell the truth. 3 of my 4 are old enough.

You have time to respond. You can also adjourn it. Consider this: you dont have to pay anything until a judge decides and you get to present your side. Stay calm and wait for a call back from a lawyer. You will be ok.

If that doesnt work, look at everything else this woman has thrown at you and you survived. You will get through this!

And if THAT doesnt work, look at your kids. You saved them from this woman. Youre a hero.

Its just words on a piece of paper!!

Thank you RS. Given the disgrace of an assault around my neck I am truly grateful for everyone's support.

I am a good Dad, and would give anything for my kids. My son heard me sobbing last night like an idiot and stayed with me the whole night.

Forever thankful.

Things happen. No one is perfect and we all make mistakes. You did what you did. You took your punishment and you continue to atone for what happened. Theres no excuse for her to capitalize on this to punish you and your kids.

Because the tort claim is kind of different. Its not about me being the better parent, its about liability for damages.

What she's putting forward as the account of events is patently false, but something did happen. The number she is asking for means I would work until I die to life a sub standard live and that I could never retire. Thats what worries me.

Mind you, I felt alot worse when I didn't have the children. I guess worst case I'll live with them. LoL
