Tons with my ex - glad that's over now.

None with his ex. They have a decent relationship - by that I mean that he gives her what she wants & doesn't fight things. She bashes him to the kids - she doesn't want him to be their father but she wants the support checks. I guess it works since we're not constantly battling.

Once with my ex. Just the divorce hearing. We still get along now, even though our kids are both over 18.

With his ex, too many to count. Initially when they separated, she filed for child support and then a year later for divorce and custody. He fought the custody to get the visitation that she had previously denied him. That took us like 10 court appearances. The she was held in contempt of court for denying visitation and that took like 3 appearances. Then she filed a protective order against him, which took two appearances. Now that we have the boys we've been back & forth 6 times for various things. I'm hoping after December it will all be over.

Never with my ex. We have a pretty good relationship and can work things out on our own. Even though he has been acting a little werid.

He's ex only once for the divorce.

Only to get divorced with my ex. A few times with his ex but it was the same trial. He really wants to go back but is afraid to. He knows that between the two of them the amount of support would increase a lot and he doesn't think he can afford to pay more at the moment. As is we pay 500 a month, that would easily double if he went back.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

I haven't been to court. My ex and I were never married and when the child support hearing took place the person representing me went on my behalf.

Just once for the divorce. I'm hoping it stays that way.

Never did. I dont know if DH and BM went to court in the divorce or not, even though DH and I were already dating (I was in military training when the divorce went through). But BM had custody, and when DH and I got married and she decided to reverse it so we had SD, we just hired a lawyer and he did it all for us.
