Part 2

Well I never thought I would have to make a follow up page.

Thank you all lovely people for the handholds, if you've read the previous thread you know what I have been through, and I can't begin to explain how wonderful I found the support on here. So Thank you ... on I go!

Awestruck with how level headed you're being. Hoping you get this nonsense sorted out in court.

Been reading since the beginning of thread one and wanted to add my chorus of support for you.

Another one delurking to wish you strength in dealing with this

Your STBX sounds obsessive and if I'm honest, scary. I hope you get all the support you need in RL, especially legal!

Delurking to offer support... What your XH is doing is beyond awful. And in the long term he won't get away with this - the court will take a very, very dim view of what he's doing right now.

I found your other thread yeaterday and read it all. I hope you get your little girl home soon.

I had 3 full threads with my divorce! It was epic! The amount of loving support I received from so many wonderful MN'ers, some of whom have become lifelong friends, was astonishing. There's a lot of strength to b drawn here OP.

Still here with a hand to hold, particularly in these dark days.

<waves at MrsC> Oh yes, I do remember what a shit time you had of it! Can't believe he's still being Mr WT!!!

Awesmum, all you can do is all you can do. Just follow your solicitor's advice and try to keep as calm as you can. I know it's hard to believe now, but this will soon be just a bad memory and you are going to have countless days, months, and years with DD.

Apropos of him 'focusing' on the object of his affection, too bad you don't have a 'femme fatale' friend who could entice him into a relationship, get him to loose his death grip on DD and then dump his sorry arse. (I enjoy revenge fantasies)

Have been reading your updates, my God he sounds deranged. I cannot bear to imagine the effect he is having on your daughter flowers

Very little sleep again last night. This is horrendous, I bet he's absolutely loving this at the moment, I feel like I am back under his control, I can't plan anything, I can't decide anything, because I don't know what is happening or when I am getting her back. I am due in to work today, if he drops her at nursery my instinct is to run and get her and go home, but then I am no better than him, and I need this job and I need the money, especially to fight him in court. He can pick her up when he chooses if he decides on taking her at all. So he drop her off and then what's to say he won't pick her up at say lunchtime. His proposal was to pick her up from nursery today and have her till Friday anyway, I just don't know what to do?!
I am going to speak to my boss but I am terrified of appearing flaky because of this shit. I am waiting on every email and every phone call, but I am having to do all the chasing because solicitors aren't proactive (apology for generalising there, just my experience).

I am 5 steps back under his control and not knowing when I am seeing my baby next.

Mrsmummy90 Wed 13-Mar-19 07:13:04

Does your boss have an idea of the situation? I'm sure they'd be sympathetic.
I'd go get her. He's had her all weekend and you need to know she's ok xx

awesmum Wed 13-Mar-19 07:21:49

Every instinct is saying go get her, but because I am still in my probationary period I am worried about being more trouble than help. I need the money.

But no if he drops her I am going to go get her.

Disfordarkchocolate Wed 13-Mar-19 07:40:56

I think you need to talk to your boss, who wouldn't be sympathetic in this situation?

RandomMess Wed 13-Mar-19 08:43:02

You do need to tell your employers. This is a temporary issue in as much it will go to court fairly soon and you will be getting power of arrest attached to the CO.


BeUpStanding Wed 13-Mar-19 09:12:30

Definitely talk to your boss.

Question for anyone - is KOKO Keep On Keeping On?!

Sending strength and fortitude your way Awesmum flowers

RandomMess Wed 13-Mar-19 09:17:09

Yes to meaning of KOKO

TheFormidableMrsC Wed 13-Mar-19 09:22:28

I do think that you must get contact formalised as soon as you can. This is ridiculous. If you have residency then under these circumstances, the police would be able to go and remove her from him. I don't think a court order is going to keep him "in line" but continual breaches will mean he may lose all contact eventually. The effect of this on your daughter cannot be overlooked. Speak to your employers and be honest about the situation you're in. The man is deranged and I am concerned that your solicitors are not acting speedily enough. I think I would also be requesting another welfare check by the Police.
