    They were by texts, I have them saved and have also exported them in a .txt format. The decision wasn't technically made by a judge. My lawyer and I, and hers and hers I guess mediated. They wrote it out and then had a judge sign it. Would that count for the 2 year rule?

    Yes, it passed through the courts even if it was just the judge signing the order. The 2 year rule is not hard and fast nor written in stone its more of a general guideline that most courts commonly follow. The idea behind it is to keep the child from becoming a ping pong ball.

    Ahh OK, that was what I was hoping for at least. I do not want him being bounced around, and I can't imagine a good enough reason to take him away from me.
    What I thought was maybe this was her lawyers attempt to raise the cost of the whole thing a bit more. Or that maybe if they shoot for everything they will end up better off then they are now.
    But, she knows I have texts, emails, recordings. Our son was given a clean bill of health at his 9 mo check up.
    And I have not done anything that she knows of, or doesn't know of, that could be considered in an world as neglectful or harmful in any way. (basically I have been a saint) I don't even drink.

    Ok Saint Delow. Just remember it is perfectly normal to have a life too. Its OK to relax and to have an occasional beer if you like or glass of wine with a meal. Don't forget that to be the best parent you can; you too need time for yourself and your inner growth.

    Lol I didn't mean to imply that I am neglecting myself. I have had a couple of drinks once since I have had him. But mainly my thing is to hang out with him, or play video games when he's crashed out. So I am happy with how our daily lives are. I only meant I have made sure to stay clear of trouble in any form, so that it can't be used against me.
    Sigh
    Thank you, I guess the more assurances I hear, the more voices I hear telling me the same things I know... it makes it a little easier to relax. This site really has been one of the best things in my life for quite awhile now.
