“I was pretty shocked to discover that his wife reached out to me, basically crying about what happened, how she couldn’t believe it, and how now that we’re in the same camp, so to speak, we should maintain a relationship so our daughters can still be in each other’s lives and so we can commiserate.”

My kids no longer want to visit their dad: Advice?

I live in North Dakota. As of right now, my EX and I share custody of our children. There has never been a Custody agreement put on paper; we were never married. Things are Changing, and my children are unhappy. They no longer want to go over there when it’s his time. Also, they have terrible attitudes when they come home. They never have any positive things to say about their time with him. My oldest makes a list of everything she misses when she home with me. I want to go for full custody, and I’ve been calling around, I filled out paperwork for legal aid and was turned down because the house makes to much. It would be just me fighting this fight and paying for it, but they want the entire income for everyone in the house. (we live with my bf) I know I can not afford this fight on my own. Does anyone have any advice for me? Anyone else been in this situation? How does this work? I just want my children to be happy!

I built up the courage to leave my husband and need support: Thoughts?

Last night, I finally built up the courage to tell my husband that I was finished with our marriage. I always told him to please try talking to me more, love me more, make me feel like I’m worth his time, give me some attention…. he still doesn’t. Enough is enough. He is shocked & upset, which I expected. He’s also hurt, which I ALSO expected. I’m hurt too. I can’t stand how he treats our girls. He pushes them away, doesn’t give them attention, no love, no affection between a father and his daughters, doesn’t play with them, doesn’t read books with them, he always yells…. again, enough is enough. I told him to try more, do more — still nothing. I AM LEAVING. I need to RUN. I don’t want to look back and regret it, saying things like “I should’ve left. I should’ve done this and that” DO IT NOW. Be on my own with the kids, and we’ll be happier. Right now, it’s really hard going through this.. one day at a time. Please tell me you’re going through this too. I really need support right now.

Advice on filing for divorce?

My husband and I have been married for seven years, and I want to go through with a divorce. We had a four-year-old daughter, and I make enough on my own that I don’t qualify for child care assistance, but don’t make enough to pay the mortgage, 195 a wk for child care, food, and bills. My husband makes double what I make, and so he currently pays all the bills and costs. Because he is a subcontractor, he itemizes his taxes and pays his taxes at the end of the year, which due to writing everything off, he makes less than what I make in the paper. I am afraid that although he has a lot in savings, I will not see a dime in alimony or child support. He gets his checks and, at the end of the year, pays taxes owed, so how would he pay me child support if on paper he isn’t making any money, but he really is. I’m afraid to get a divorce and be in the worst spot that I know. The reason I want a divorce is that he likes to stay with his brothers after work and drink heavily and …

What is the process of my kids dad signing away his rights?

Hi well I had a question, I have two kids a 1.5-year-old boy and an almost-four-year-old girl when I was pregnant with my second I left their dad due to cheating well we were living in Mexico with him, and when that happened I moved back to Colorado he stayed with the girl and had their son a month ago he called me today saying that him and his wife thought it was better for him to sign away his rights since he is on their birth certificates and I need signed letters from him for like passports, school, traveling, etc. and he doesn’t want any more contact with us I said yeah it was better that way since he doesn’t call or help or have seen my kids a year. My question is, how do I start that process? Do I have to get a lawyer? Can he be removed from their birth certificates and have his last name removed too? And if it’s possible to remove his last name, should I? I don’t think it’s fair to do that to my kids, but my family is saying by signing his rights it means he doesn’t care Anonymous Community …
