I dont know law. My childrenare made to wake very early an hour away from their school. Five minute drive from my home. Week to week is NOT what I told her I wanted for the children. During the school week and go to their dads on the weekend. The husband quit working so he would not pay child support.His main motive! the house went into forclosure 2 weeks prior to mediation. My attorney was banking on the sale of the home to be compensated for the complex situation. Attorney said that she is tired of this case and is ready for it to be over!! Hint hint... I did not pay her to give him what he wanted and to forget about the childrens chaious among heavy drinking and meth use by their father and his girlfriend not to mention the orgys with children in the same house! what could i do w/out an attorney and the $2500 to hire a new one? Some attorneys truely are cold cruel & crooked and take advantage of those of us who dont know what options we have . Being told NOW that I could have fired her and retained her is for those informed of their options.
money talks and that is so sad for ALL children caught in the middle!
Nothing you've said, however, is leading me to believe that you were forced to do anything. Just because you don't have money to alter your situation doesn't mean that someone is forcing you into agreeing to something that you really don't want to agree to. I still think you'll have a hard time proving your contention, and I agree with Mr. Harrison, below, that the law strongly favors the settlement.
