    Did not plan this
    Participant

    Hi

    I have been reading this board with interest for the last couple of months and thought I would say hello.

    I have been a single parent for almost a year, separated for a little over a year.

    I have felt very sorry for myself, but seeing some of the things other single parents have been going through makes me put my own worries in their place.

    I am fortunate that my ex had a nasty plan to have me arrested and removed from my own home (read on, it will make sense). Due to this I have had legal counsel from a mediator/solicitor from the very beginning of my ordeal. Even though this is quite an expense it has removed the unknowns from my situation which from what I have been reading, seems to be one of the worst things to deal with.

    I am amazed how some of you cope on your own and wish you all the very best.

    Just remember, situations change all the time. This time last year I was sleeping in my mother’s spare room and being told by my ex that I could see my children every other weekend if she allowed it. A little bit of truth and several court hearings later, I have custody of the children and my ex has a court order allowing her to see one of our children for 4 hours each fortnight. Our other child refuses to see her, which is probably for the best.

    Chin up. Silver lining may be just around the corner.

    Hi Lurker.

    Yes getting information on what is truth of a situation rather than believing what someone else says (usually the ex) is empowering.Glad things have worked out well for you and your children.
