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.
