BM's attorney asked for (and got) a continuance.
BLAH. What a waste of time and money it was this morning! We got there at 8:45 AM and the case wasn't even called until close to 10 AM. Lovely that DH's primary attorney (who is also representing me for my protection order) charges $300/hr. AND he has two attorneys and one was there the whole time, the other for half the time...can't wait to see that bill!
Oh well. The GAL was there, as well, and it turns out there WILL be someone from DFS involved as well, because of the allegations against BM.
DH got to speak w/the GAL briefly and they made an appt. for us to meet with him this coming Tues. So that will be good. REally, again, DH reiterated that he is not really seeking permanent full custody--he recognzies that BM loves her son and he just wants there to be measures in place for her to get HELP. He wants BM to be on probation, if you will.
Anyway...it's kind of disappointing/frustrating to get all geared up for court and expect to have some answers and then just get it continued...but I guess that's how it all works.
BM looked HORRID btw! DH and I and our attorneys were SHOCKED. The woman was wearing a skirt that looked like a SHIRT--it was SOOOOO SHORT! And then she had these 4-5 inch heels on and tons of dark eye makeup. I kid you not, she looked like a prostitute! She's lost about 30-40 lbs, too, she is about 5' 2" and I bet she weighs 90 lbs! I noticed that when she was at our house two weeks ago, but she looks even worse now. Seriously--I think she is drinking at home a lot more than we know--I think she is hungover a lot and doesn't eat.
So--we will see what happens when we meet with the GAL and then the case is continued for 2 weeks from now.
