Hi. My ex husband moved from MI to Fl today. We have 2 daughters: 7 & almost 9. We had a hearing last week. He's already told the girls they will be with him spring break, and for 6 wks. in the summer!! They've never been apart from me for any extended period of time. They have a very terrible relationship with his wife. She is very very mean & nasty to them. They are being interviewed next week then that will be sent to the judge. From there, he'll decide what custody my ex will get. I'm just a wreck. So are the girls. Spending just the every other weekend with them has been more than enough time. She has done some things that make you question if she has any moral compass or sanity. She's really screwed up! She has never raised her own daughter. I see big red flags. I just hope F.O.C. will listen the girls & take everything into account in the decision! Thanks for letting me vent!! :) I'd like to hear from you if you have had to sent your children for extended visits & how everyone handles it. I am also very concerned about the fact that they said I have to pay 1/2 of the travel expenses. I'm divorced with 6 kids!! I am SOOO broke now. How do they think I will be able to do that? I really have NO extra money. Anyway, thanks in advance for any tips or ideas you may have.
