Child Custody Battle –
hey ... i've always thought of these forums as home ... the crazy days with LOD and ps2charlie ... oh, and <G> thinking that I'm a DMS fanboy. *shrug*
oh well, just thought that i'd come to a neutral location and voice my situation ... see if anyone else has a similar experience.
here's the scoop, I?m 36 and happily married, my wife (happily married 3 years) and i have (an extremely) beautiful one year old girl together. things became difficult with the fact that i have a 9 year old son from a previous relationship. because my ex (girlfriend ... never married to me) has left my son in my custody for the past year, things became VERY DIFFICULT over the x-mas break.
just prior to x-mas, her other son (from a previous relationship) has falsely accused me of sexual abuse (sick, i know) from 6 years ago (the last time that her and i lived together). the local police investigated me for the possibility of laying criminal charges. after interviewing me, they realized that they didn't have a case.
unfortunately, my EX is now hiring a lawyer for litigation which could be unpleasant for everyone involved (well ... except for you guys here). she is hoping to use this false sex abuse accusation as her grounds for her case. It is my belief that she is using this as grounds to gain custody of our son, and therefore receive custody payments that she would use to finance her negative ?habits?.
sad, really. my son is 9 years old and he loves living with us.
but, thank god my wife is soooo understanding and supportive (I love her so, and she doesn?t believe the allegations against me at all).
the only ones that i can see profiting in this is the civil lawyers.
It?s sad, but I think that she dreamt up the sexual abuse charges such that she could gain custody of my son and then receive child support payments to fund her failing relationship with her current live-in boyfriend.
Sorry, all ? I just had to vent.
Thankfully, the lawyer supporting us is a friend of my wife (God bless both my wife and her friend [the lawyer]). It?s just a shame that things are so messy to go through this.
Well ? I guess I can?t get any more off topic than this ? anyone care to comment?
