...I regret filing for divorce. Maybe I should regret marrying the idiot, but it wasn't all bad - I have a house and three amazing kids (despite their issues). I had filed contempt papers because he hadn't sent me all the financial paperwork that was required, but evidenced by financial forms he did file. I also finally filed for temporary child support, and here's where his idiot gene kicks into high gear! So he writes a letter to the General Magistrate asking for a continuance. (ah, I don't think that's how it's done) In it he's claiming his mother's death as an obstacle to getting his paperwork in order. He also says he sent his bank records to the court because he doesn't think he needs to send them to me because it's actually his sister's account - he's just on it as a signer so he can cash his check and pay his bills through it. Court doesn't want copies of these things. If it gets processed through the clerk's office, he just made those bank records public. *idiot* Still no mention of the lease that I specifically requested and is included in the list of required paperwork. He goes on to accuse me of tax fraud stating that by his calculations, my income should be double what I'm reporting when his numbers actually show it as TRIPLE! He's pulling all sorts of numbers out of the air including questioning my shipping charges, because he talked to the accounting ppl at the shop he works at and they spend half of what I spend on shipping, so I must be overstating my shipping costs. Apparently he also sent an 'accounting' of marital assets along with this letter (didn't send me a copy) and is asking for an audit of said assets because I grossly understated them. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, he had the opportunity to do this with initial paperwork and did no such thing. He still thinks our (oops MY) house is worth what it was when we had it appraised in 2005. Yeah, nope, worth less than half that. So, he's asking for all this auditing to happen BEFORE child support is determined. Here's the REALLY funny part. Child support is determined by a state mandated calculation based on both mother and father income. I quickly calculated it up with my "new" income, and what he's required to pay in that scenario is only $130 less per month. HOWEVER if I do make that much money, the kids won't qualify for their insurance as it is, so I'll have to pay a higher premium, and undoubtedly have to pay more in copays, sooooooooooooooooooooooo factoring that in he'll be required to pay MORE than the current calculation. Court date is this Wednesday and since I got this letter today, I doubt the court will get it in time to grant the "continuance". This is gonna get the kind of interesting I would rather do without. So, this is why it took me almost 4 years to file for divorce, and I so regret not recognizing this stupidity in him.
