feelingaloneallthetime is on a distinguished road

Here's the short version: stay at home parent seeking like parents, who have had 50-50 imposed. how do you cope? How do cope with unhappy children (unhappy to the point of suicide attempts)? In addition: a parent who hasn't seen one of their children in 5 years and the other children haven't since 4 years.

Good start. Hope you get more replies.

Keep in mind that you may not like responses. However, you might get some good advice. People on here have been through some part of legal process (few have gone through to trial).

Many stay at home parents have 50-50 imposed, youre not the first and you wont be the last. Your biggest issue seems to be you were forced to pay support. The difference in your situation is that you were not a typical stay at home parent... yes you stayed home but you still worked and made clearly a decent wage. Just because you stay home with the children doesnt mean you dont pay support. Support is based on income, regardless of someone being a stay at home parent. Access is what it is. 50-50 is the new norm, your job as a parent is encouraging your children to have a relationship with their mother, like she should be doing with you.

Selling a house is normal in separation, going into debt is normal, emotions are normal. There is nothing special about your situation. Sounds like the judge ruled on facts (you made more money so you pay support and mom isnt a danger to the children so she gets 50-50).

I question why you havent been back to court to regain access to your daughter?
