On the 10th of June we had the court hearing, effectively a formality to have a judge ratifying our already signed agreement on the children shared custody and financial arrangements. As I am paying for every recurring expenses and will cover 2/3 of the unforeseen expenses, I doubted there could have been a problem. All went smoothly, it only lasted an hour in total, the judge was very friendly and complimented us for being so civil and she could tell the children were very much ok with the situation (she spoke with the children in a separate private hearing the previous week).
Mike always looks like he doesn't know what is going on, seems to have said to a friend that he was not actually sure what he signed that day, but I am forcing myself to believe that it was a joke which he thought it was funny.
In ten days the judge sentence will be deposited and I'll be officially free again.
