What is on your wish list as regards custody of the kids? That is your new legal position.
Man, I'm hearing that a lot from ppl I tell, the past few hours. My wish? Full custody, man. Because my kids are small, man (8 and 1). These little dudes need some normalcy and fun...And NJ is just...Man, I dunno she needs to be monitored 24/7 while they experiment with the latest and greatest anti-psychotics. Forget how I feel about her. I'm trying to look at that scenario from my kid's perspective (mom being nuts and on meds or in hospital), and it saddens me, for them. But I'm ready, that's for sure. There's no other way. They're awesome.
You need to request a psych eval ASAP. I know you said you can't afford it, but honestly you can't afford not to get one. And with that level of craziness and lack of medication there is no way she can hide it. Takes a lot for some judges to take custody away from the Mom. With that bizarre filing and a psych eval stating she's loco and a danger to the children the judge would have no choice.
A psych eval is of course the appropriate and obvious advice but It's a damn shame that some moron of a judge would need an official weather report from NOAA to be told it's raining outside when all he has to do is look.
The bltch is crazy. It's obvious from her pleadings. Any pretense of "Best interest" is just judges bias.
BTW, don't flintch in the judges courtroom or you might get beat to death by a baliff, meanwhile NJ mom can scream and cry and threaten the judge and go home to the kids.
Funny but also very serious last few posts^ But yea, L has been pleading with me to do a psych evaluation for weeks. And then like a star out the sky, NJ loses her L and files this crazy motion. Just like someone used the weather analogy^ this writing is about as self explanatory as it gets. So I say forget psych evals and more BS. I'm ready to cut to the chase, and motion to modify temp orders. So in other words, it would be her turn to go live with her parents and enjoy EOW with kiddos.
I know guys on this site are known to preach that temp orders are tough to change. But in my circumstance, I think there couldn't be a better time than now. If judge denies that now, I honestly don't know what to say.
