Dealing with Ex-Husband is causing me stress

Monday, February 11, 2013

Ok here's the situation...

I have been divorced from first ex (who I have 2 children with) for almost 8 years. I've moved on, he's moved on (he got remarried, I got remarried, then divorced again, now in a relationship with supportive man). He has custody. The clincher is, I travel to see my kids and spend time with them and my in-laws have been kind enough to let me stay at their place to visit my kids. However, because of some drama that happened on Facebook, now my ex-husband is saying he doesn't feel comfortable with me being at his parent's house to see our children. So, my mother-in-law asked me to find other arrangements to see my kids. Needless to say, last weekend because it was hard to deal with emotionally- I overate and blew my program.

The good news is...I'm not letting HIM or IN-LAWS defeat my lifestyle change. I'm back on board and doing my SP for ME!

I'm wondering if I need to get legal counsel on this??

    I feel like ex is violating my rights by telling me I can't be there to spend time with my kids...yes, there is other options but the way I see it, it is another way for him to "control" me.

    Hmmmm dealing with it better today and back on track. :)

    Wow, you have plenty going on and reason to be stressed. I am proud of you for putting that "bad" day behind you and not giving up on your program! emoticon

    Wow what a tough situation. I wish you all the best in sorting it out. You certainly have the right to see your kids but I know of no legal rights that would require your ex-in-laws to host you, unless there is something in your custody arrangements? Legal counsel doesn't hurt! Are there others that you could stay with (friends in the area etc.)?
    Hang in there!
