Ok, I don't want to offend anyone, so if you're easily offended, you may as well stop reading now and click on over to a nice friendly blog.
I'm going to give you the quick and dirty and leave out all the nonsense. I requested an increase in child support because ex went back to work. Ok, it was approved but the judge has to sign off on it. I've never had a reason to transfer my case to my new town. Well, buddy, I do now.
After missing 3 classes and driving two hours to hear my name called followed by some random date in early March I got mad. I don't mean a little aggravated. Apparently today was only motion hour, whatever that means. I had called the child support office 4 times last week to verify that I really and truly had to be there today and was told that yes, it is imperative and the judge kicks out the motion if the petitioner isn't in court. Ok, yes ma'am, I understand.
I had to pull my children out of school for the entire day and my mother had to reschedule a dr's appointment and drive an hour to meet me so she could watch them.
I literally saw red. I was literally seething. I can't come up with another word in the English language to describe my anger.
The primary reason I hadn't put in the request (yes it is a request, the child support office can refuse to take a case) at the new office was because I was afraid there would be a gap or a delay in receiving the support. I left a message at the local office to see if I can transfer my case there. I hope they call. I hope they accept the transfer.
On top of that, I had gotten to town 3 hours early to spend time with my oldest and after numerous phone calls, he finally called back to say he'd just woken up and didn't feel good so he was going back to bed.
Today really sucked.
Tomorrow is a new day.
