We had mediation today for two hours. We signed the written copy and my attorney is going to type them up and have me come in to sign the copy that will go to the judge. After thinking about it, I don’t want my husband to get joint custody of my son. He hasn’t helped me financially – ever. I don’t care about the child support, but I want full custody of my son.
If you’re still feeling a little sour about it once the office opens tomorrow morning, call your lawyer the MINUTE the office opens and do what you can to stop that order from going to the courts.
However, and this is my opinion: Though it’s understandable that you’re clearly upset, I don’t think you should be using your son as a weapon against your ex with your anger.
EDIT: Also, I don’t truly believe that the court will award you full custody without a reason and proof that your ex isn’t responsible enough for joint custody. So it may be a better idea to try to stick it out with joint custody agreement and have set visitation days.
