And I really don't think that there is a lot I can do about it. Background: In 2007, my ex husband and I divorced. At the time our children were aged 17, 7, 6 (Carson) and 3. We have joint custody of our kids. He remarried in 2008 and so did I. The divorce papers say that they go to school in his district (because the days HE has custody of them is the bulk of their school week--because he is off work Mon-Wed When Carson was starting the 3rd grade my ex called me and asked if Carson could come and live with me full time (Carson spends one night with his Dad). They were having a lot of problems with Carson (aggression with his siblings and step siblings, problems at school--"he too much for us to handle right now." I do not work and Carson is an 'only child' Monday-Thursday at my house. I have taken him to all appointments, to all school meetings. *I* got the IEP process rolling and took on all research and meetings for it. Last night the ex told me that they are planning on Taking Carson back and changing his school this Summer. I am broken. His behavior hasn't changed (Carson's). I told the ex to be sure and read the copy of the schools evaluation before making any final decision--but... I'm afraid he won't change his mind. Carson doesn't want to change schools--though he would love to spend more time with his Dad and with his baby half sister (remember, he LOVES babies). I do not have the money to fight him. I can't afford an attorney. I feel ill about this. My two other children ask me constantly to come live with me (11 and 6). They are not fond of their step mother at all. I really do feel devastated.
