I have been married to a wonderful guy for 2 years, but he was not my first marriage. I married my high school sweetheart when I was 20 and had a daughter with him. My daughter will be 10 tomorrow. We divorced when she was less than a year old and she lived with me up until 5 months ago. My husband got a wonderful job opportunity in Austin 2 years ago, so we went to the court to ask the judge for permission to move with my daughter. The judge said yes, but lost the election 3 months before our trial. I originally took him back to court because for several years I was a single mom and he was only contributing $200 p/month for child support. We also had a crazy schedule and it needed to be standardized. When we had out trial the NEW judge told me I either had to move back to Dallas or loose custody of my daughter to her father, even though the court found it in her best interest to remain living with me. I was and still am paying for her to fly back-n-forth between Dallas and Austin (approx 30 mins in the air). He doesnt even live in Dallas; he is 30 miles away! We moved here for a better living situation. My husband got a great job with a raise that was more than my salary in Dallas, which allowed me to stop working and to become a full-time stay at home mom. There is much more to this story Bottom line is I am missing my daughter like crazy and cant find anything to sooth the pain of her absence. We are currently in the court of appeals, but I am so scared of another bad ruling. Anyone with a similar story?
