My brother's attorney told ours today that he is appealing.
Hubby talked to him today. Bro, that is.
Bro basically wants everything the last court order would have given him, had he done any of the things the judge required: continued (court-ordered and -enforceable) visitation, increased time, up to and including custodial periods of every other weekend.
This is NOT in the best interests of children whose father has not bothered to attempt to see them in over a year and a half.
My brother can afford to appeal. His attorney, at present, is free.
Ours is not, and 3 Fries equals 3 cases, equals 3 appeal retainers...it might cost us more to buy a fully-loaded Cadillac Escalade. But not by much.
We are devastated.
And we are very, very angry.
