Thank you for your fast response. I do want to add that the hearing was not recorded, therefore, I do not have a transcript of such hearing. Does not prevent me from filing the objection?. Also, do I file an Objection to Magistrate's Order/Report and recommendation or Motion to Set Aside?
I have been told that GMs do not like these objections and sometimes it makes things worse.
I will, however, file it. As you said, that way "it is on the record". I have all the evidence I believe I need and also, as you said, the other party did not present any evidence. The GM got really upset about this letter, which makes no sense. I now know that they do not like these letters, but I was only stating facts such as that "he is requesting child support payments to be reduced" (when he was found in contempt, he owed $14,000). Also, I mentioned that he in one occasion, offered to pay $46 A MONTH for all 3 children. Her feedback was that I was still "not over" this situation and that "I needed therapy". I am not an attorney, but I find this totally absurd and needless to say, unfair. She has no evidence to ordered me to attend therapy, because "I concern her". I now you were not there, but this is unacceptable. I have been a responsible parent and my children's behavior and performance in school proves it. Please advise, if you can, if an objection would really go against me. I thank you.
You have been GREAT. Thank you for giving me a peace of mind. God bless you.
