But that's not the reason for this post. I just got an email from my lawyer, responding to one I sent him covering the dates and amounts owed for support. He hasn't pulled the paperwork yet, but he's pretty sure that I've misunderstood one thing since the hearing:
The support amount isn't supposed to be revisited for 2007 and following years. It terminates. While there's always the possibility of her raising a stink, to a huge extent this means I'd be free.
This comes rather nicely on the heels of an email I received from her yesterday. I've only skimmed it - I'm apparently still so touchy on the subject that I have to ease into reading anything from her - but one thing she mentioned was that she has a job. On top of that, that she's gone to college for said job - so it's doubtful she's making minimum wage.
When I mentioned this to Frida last night, her first comment was "Wow, you were right - you were bad for her!"
So there's even more indication of a light at the end of the tunnel - what that light represents will be more clear when I talk to the mortgage people tomorrow.
In other news: She'd previously mentioned being involved in criminal proceedings back in 2004. From her latest email, it appears this was against Devin. Devin was her boyfriend, the last time I saw her. He spent a long time talking to me about what to do to properly take care of her, and seemed genuinely devoted.
What did she do to him?
