I think my husband is in love with our new lawyer! LOL Last Tuesday-ish, my husband's ex, who is on my facebook, sent me a message telling me that his daughter was starving because they had ran out of food stamps and it would be a few days before they would receive some more. The only reason why she told us this was because she wanted us to send her some money. Well we told her that if we had had the money we would send it but as of right now, things are pretty tight money wise. So fast forward to Saturday, I was getting ready to leave to go to a wedding and something told me to check the mail box. We got a letter from DHS in the county where my husband's ex lives and discovered that she had contacted DHS and was demanding more child support from my husband. Ok fast forward once again to this morning, my husband contacts the lawyer that is going to help us with our visitation case. He told the lawyer about my SD not having food and we had proof because hubby's ex told us herself. The lawyer has now changed the case from filing for visitation to filing for custody. He said that it is a possibility that we could get custody of my SD on grounds because they don't have a working car, hubby's ex has no job and they keep running out of food. As of right now, she still doesn't know anything but hubby and I sent a letter to the DHS in her county saying that they would have to talk to our lawyer and that we were taking the ex to court, the papers will be filed within the next 2 weeks! I already know what is going to happen. When DHS receives the letter, they are going to contact the ex about us taking her to court and she is going to throw a shit fit and will be contacting us. I told my husband for the next 2 weeks, he was not allowed to answer the house phone (we don't have caller ID on the house phone) and that if somebody wants to get in touch with us, they will have to call my cell (which does have caller ID). I told him that if she contacts him through the internet, he would have to do a print screen to show what she is saying because we already know it's going to be nasty. Now if she had just cooperated with us to begin with, we wouldn't have had to take her to court and all of this could have been avoided. But no! She wanted to be difficult and bash us at every opportunity she could and refuse to allow us to spend time with SD so now we have to take legal actions. As of right now, we are just waiting for the shit to hit the fan. Should be interesting.
