    This has been a rough year!! Last Oct we tried to move out of state for several reasons... more secure job, had a friend who could buy me a farm, lower cost of living than CA, just to name a few. We wound up staying in CA at my ex husbands request so he could remain close to our son. Then in Jan we had to renegotiate child support and he wound up paying more than he wanted and THEN I get to claim him on the taxes because I have him more than 50% of the time.

    NOW he is trying to take custody of my son so we can't ever move out of state, he can pay less support and he can claim him. I was victorious in court last week, but now he wants my son drug into mediation next Wednesday, to put him in the middle of this. It totally sucks, and I have no way to prevent it without losing custody of him....

    Please pray for protection!!

    AND today I found out I will probably be laid off on Monday. Which is why we were trying to move in the first place. I am so, so overwhelmed.

    But God is on His throne so everything still has to be Okay. I am praying Austin won't have to go to mediation, and that I wont lose my job!!

    Thanks and sorry it is so long!!

  2. Prayers and [​IMG] for you... it sounds like a very stressful time for you. I sure hope things get better and you don't have to battle to keep custody of your son.

    Mediation got postponed until this coming Tuesday. Austin has to meet with the mediator at 8:45 and then my ex and I meet with her immediately afterwards. And then we go to court the next morning to have ordered whatever is agreed on.

    Austin just left for the weekend and I won't see him again before Tuesday. It will be a long lonely time. My imagination is getting the better of me.

    Please pray for protection! No change in custody and no change in school or where he is living! Please!!!

    Suz, I'm sorry you are going through such trials now. Hopefully, it will all work out and be just a dim memory. [​IMG]
