The father of my unborn child went from being incredible
The father of my unborn child went from being incredible cooperative and supportive (I have text messages showing the details of all of this) to telling his family and cutting off communication with me. He has refused to answer any of my questions including if he would like to be involved with the pregnancy.I have been keeping him updated about dr appts and complications with the pregnancy, however, I told him I will not share medical info through text messages. After I told him that, I found out that he was actually sharing my text messages with others (I have a written statement from someone that not only shares that he showed my text messages, but this individual was able to specifically relay some information that I only shared with him). He even tried to deny it. In the meantime, he tells me the only way he will talk to me is through text messages and if I don't share the information with him, then that is my choice not to involve him.I do not ever want him to accuse me of not sharing information, so I have continued to keep him updated about dr apps through certified mail with return receipts. When something urgent arises, I send him a text message, as requested, with a note that says "it's an emergency" or "please call me, it's urgent." He does not respond to these things, however, knowing that he can easily deny receiving a text message (and he keeps my phone number on "do not disturb" on his cell phone, so I can call and leave a message, but I don't actually know if he's receiving it), I have left a couple of voicemails on his work phone with a simple, short message that says, "please call me, it's urgent/it's an emergency". In one situation, there was a serious emergency and I called the main office line to leave a message with a receptionist-- again, I didn't give any details, just that it was an emergency and I needed him to call me. My justification to this is that if he has my phone on “do not disturb”, it is essentially the equivalent of him not having a cell phone and, before people had cell phones, they were contacted at home or work or whenever they were visiting.He gets very mad and says I am not to call him at work or speak to anyone at his office. He is angry because he does not want anyone to know I'm pregnant. I should also mention that I am heavily involved in the community and the reason he had the opportunity for the job he has now after 10 months of being unemployed was because of the relationships I have-- so, regardless of whether or not I say I'm pregnant, I am active in events and meetings and, in a short amount of time, it will become evident that I am pregnant. Given that no one knows he has stopped speaking to me besides his family and close friends, they will know he is the father.Up until the day he told his family I was pregnant and stopped communicating normally with me, I have months of text messages and calls from him while he was at work and at his office. On top of that, ever since the day he told his family, he has only responded to me during work hours with the exception of a few times during weekend hours-- typically if I have an urgent issue on a Friday, I will not receive a response from him until after 8 AM on the following Monday once he has returned to his office. So, saying that he cannot speak during work hours is completely false and his actions prove that.I have asked him several times to share with me the appropriate way to contact him during an emergency where he will be able to respond. He says text messages, but again, I do not want to share medical information in that way. I said if he prefers not to receive information about the pregnancy in urgent situations, then all he has to do is tell me and I won't contact him for those reasons (I still plan to send certified letters with dr appts, parenting classes, etc.). He has not responded.I'm not sure how to proceed. I don't want to ever be accused of not updating him (I went one week without reaching out to him after I found out he was sharing my text messages and in that time, he told everyone I had been lying about being pregnant and the only reason I was telling people that was to try to guilt him into staying with me and that there was not actually a baby) or not updating him and then having him say he was misinformed.I am also very concerned he will try to come after me saying that I'm threatening his work environment. His family has been accusing me of false threats for months-- even before they found out I was pregnant-- through text messages that did not come from my phone (which I know can easily be proven by submitting my phone for forensic analysis), so I have no doubt that they are encouraging him to make me look unstable.Is there anything I should be doing in urgent situations to make sure he can't accuse me of not keeping him informed and making sure I'm not doing anything that he could try to say is harassment?
I am in a divorce that is scheduled for Dec 12 trial. The
I am in a divorce that is scheduled for Dec 12 trial. The judge does not want to offer more continuances and he is also not allowing the dismissal of my current attorneys,who have done nothing to prepare me for trial. They did not at all collect the financial discovery of my spouse and did notforecast and plan for scheduling forensic financial review.The entire divorce centers over what settlement I am to receive in the postnuptial agreement, and there has to be a financial expert review to calculate "growth of assets," percentages, etc..So basically I believe I am being marched to an incredibly unfair trial. I cannot really change attorney as it is so close to trial and so little chance to continue it. What are my options here, in communicating my stance to the judge so he can perhaps re-evaluate and give the divorce extra months so I can schedule financial review and expert witnesses...And if I do have to attend trial at this date, how should I handle it, especially in connection with attorneys present there that I wished to have dismissed weeks ago..I am really in this difficult situation..
This is minor, but does a forensic accountant need a court
This is minor, but does a forensic accountant need a court order to examine the small corporation's books.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the court order was issued in?Customer: We're in Montana, and this is a family battle that borders on the ludicrousJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nothing. My books are perfect and every cent spent is recorded in five places.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just need to know if an accountant needs a court order to look at my books.
