My ex called me last night. I did not know if I should even talk to her but she said she really needed to talk to me. So I did. She wanted me to know how my Son has changed since I have not been able to see more and she wanted to change it. I was told that I need to be in his life more. True, I told her, but she has all the power to make these changes not me. She could not talk more on the phone she asked if we could meet and talk. I was too afraid she would set me up because I am still not supposed to talk to her. She called again today to ask again to meet and talk. I couldn’t just ignore her pleas to talk. I want to work things out so I agreed to meet and talk.
She wants to allow me to pick him up Friday nights and take him to school on Monday morning. I also told her about the trouble I am having finding a place to let me move in with my limited income. I could buy a brand new trailer, I was approved to buy but the parks won’t let me move there because the lot rent would be more than 30% of my total income. She brought up the idea of moving into her apt because she moved into her B.F. Marks apt. No one is in her old apt and it is paid for until July. She pre paid for a year with the money (18,000+) I gave her for back support. I will have to pay her only $500 instead of $800 per month. That would be cool but 500 is still a lot every month plus the other bill so I suggested paying Half of the 500 a month x 7 months = 3500. I agreed to pay her 1750 (Half) up front and the other half @ 250 a month. That way I am not cutting myself short during the month. Is this something I should trust her on?? Is this a good idea???
I told her that she can call my atty and stop all our Court issues and he might even draw up an agreement for the apt too. She forgets how much of tis all is in her control. She could make all of our lives better if she really wanted too. She says she does but she also said she " til death do us part" so I cant’ truly trust her. I have to give her a chance to prove she is a changed person like she claims. I just hope my Son and I don’t get burned again.
We had Court tomorrow but my atty has an all day trial and had the trial rescheduled until March 06. I do not like to wait until then to ask for more time so I am hoping my Ex can be trusted.
I’ll keep my fingers crossed…tom g
