I just joined this group, my name is Carol.
I am wanting support and guidence through a separation issue.
My ex and I were never married and we have been separated for 10 years. I live in Australia and moved here from NZ to join him so my daughter will not grow up with out a father and to finally see if we can make anything of what we had in NZ. I know this was a big dicission on my part but I felt it was the best (well ok at the time it did) Anyway to cut a long story as short as possible, I have been here in Australia for 12 years with no family and believeing that my ownly support was my ex.
I finally meet someone really wonderful last year in July and started a medialtion process with my ex in November last year. All went well, he agreed to everything but has not signed the agreement forms to make our parenting plan legally binding even thou he agreed with it to my solicitor. I am wondering now what is my best next step to take.
In the past he has talked nasty about me to our daughter and I do feel he is still mucking up her mind with all different things he shouldn't be. I have felt for the past two years I have been living with a spy and she has said things to me like "the money dad gives you is mine" and "dad is taking you to court and I can't wait".
Anyone with any advice or input I would much appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you and wishing everyone the happyness we are all searching for.
