We got this huge packet in the mail yesterday from Xwife's atty sent to our atty who just fwd'd it to us w/o a stinking cover letter on what to do. But as Im reading it. They want tons of info, most of which I have already provided to our atty. But they want tax records and paystubs from 2002-till now, copies of all correspondence btw the two families, copy of our medical and dental plans, and a ton of other crap. I have been working on it all morning and am still not done. I have to go to Kinko's to make copies of all of it. But the hugest complaint is they only sent me an catalog envelope marked with 1.35 in postage...yeah right. I have enough stuff to send to put in a fedex box! lol.
This is ridiculous all we wanted was to update the visitation plan so that some things were more fair and she had to go and countersue us for full custody and now look where we are. This has gone on so long Im about due with our second child since we hired the atty..lol.
Sounds to me like basic discovery questions. You only have to provide what you have readily available. I wouldn't worry about digging up old stuff, just tell them that you haven't kept those records.
I think you indicated that she was seeking an increase in child support, so asking for financial information seems normal to me.
Oh and if the envelope is pre-addressed and postage prepaid, just put it in there, without a return address, or put their own address as a return address and they'll have to pay the difference in postage.
yeah, she wants to decrease our visitation but increase our childsupport..lol. I have finally got all the info I just have to have it all copied and it is just normal questions. Its just been a pain in the butt. Especially since I think she will probably settle with us right before the depositions. That's how she is. She just likes to see if we will follow thru. Oh well. THanks for letting me vent. Im over it now..lol
See I don't understand how parents can be like that. I'd give anything to have had my children with responcible men who paid their C/S and came to visit the kids, etc. I hope it works out for you and DH.
thank you. We try to provide a good environment for my sd. I know she would prefer name brand clothes, but I have three other children and we live off one income and I know she doesnt get that at home. I buy mostly all of our clothes at resale shops so I can get the namebrand stuff. I havent had new clothes in god knows when. But we make sure we get to do fun stuff when she is here, I dont usually make her have to many chores either. Usually just the dishwasher and we hardly ever use that. She has a gameboy, cd player, tv, dvd player all the things teens think are necessary. We pay our child support every month and have even paid for her school supplies, even though we dont have to. We constantly ask for more visitation but are always denied. Yet her mom is never happy. She actually had the nerve to list her reason to file for full custody as: we never see her. How can a person say that. Of course, my parents can testify that we do b/c everytime we have her we make a point to take her over for a visit. My parents adore her and our other kids. Everyone in my family makes sure she gets presents at her birthday and holidays just like all the other kids. My dh and I feel very unappreciated. But we are hoping justice will be served when we finally get to court. I promised DH if something ever happened to our marriage and we got divorced I would never do this to him. As long as he kept up his end of the deal I would keep up mine. But that is just the type of person Biomom is, I guess.
