Aqui Estoy!!

Life in the shelter is nice and routine. You wake up at 6 AM, breakfast is at 6:45, and the children's center is open at 8 AM. They kick you out at 10 AM, and you can't come back until 12 noon for lunch. The children's center opens at 1, and it closes at 4 PM. At 4:20 we get our tickets for dinner, and have dinner at 4:30. Curfew is 6:30 PM. Women with children have to take a shower between 5:30-6:30, everyday. Lights are out at 8 PM. Kids are required to be in bed by 8. I usually try to get my kids in bed by 7:30 so they start winding down.

Rick is still being a dick. He said he sent some divorce papers already, so we're waiting for the papers to get here. My mom is goint to help me get a lawyer. I'd rather cover my ass that way, than risk getting screwed even more than I already am. He hasn't sent any money, he doesn't intend to send me the things I left, and he sure as hell isn't returning the car that's in my name. I can't even report the car stolen since Nevada is a community property state. I'll have to figure some way around that. I'm not going to have those two driving my car and getting into an accident. If that happens, it falls on me.

Yes my life sucks. No I don't see it getting any better. So now I just wait. I can't do anything else until the baby is born in three weeks, or more accurately, the 12th of June.

The sad thing, everyone says he's going to get what's coming to him. I don't see it happening. Judging by the last month, I'm going to keep getting screwed and things are going to keep going his way. He's got his perfect girlfriend, his perfect son, a car he doesn't have to worry about getting in trouble about, and an apartment. Me, I'm in a homeless shleter with my two kids, getting screwed with bills and that damned car, and waiting for the next kid. I have no money, and I totally don't see things getting better. Never mind that I'm worried that from now on, I'm going to meet guys and keep thinking that they're another Rick. How can I get over something like that?? I really don't want to spend the rest of my life alone and fighting for my kids. I want to be loved the way I loved him. It's never going to happen. Who's going to love me that way, and love my kids too?

That is awful. I'm so sorry that you're in such a bad spot.

You need to get a lawyer, get the papers filed, get his check garnished with a lien for child support. Then get some buddies to steal the car back and get out of town. Regardless of community property, the car is in your name. If your name is on the title, you own it. Community property doesn't come into play until when the property is divided once you're divorced. No judge is going to leave a single mom with an infant and two other children without a a car.

I'm not licensed in NV so I can't take your case, but I can tell you that you are doing the right thing by getting an attorney. You need to think about your kids. Leave the other two with your sister for a few weeks if you can while you get things straightened out before the next baby comes. Then come back and get them and move someplace he won't find you until after the baby is born.

Good luck-
