Court is finished for now. There is a lot of material for the judge to review before making his ruling. He did, however, make an order for my ex to start paying me $5300/month more than he had been paying me. He commented that there is no chance of my ex over paying pending his decision as there are “significant arrears”.
My ex never showed his face in court. His lawyer attended on his behalf and just read from my ex’s affidavit.
They did try some dirty tricks. My ex hired a private investigator to surveil me the week before our hearing. He and his lawyer also travelled to Vancouver the day before our hearing getting my older daughter to swear an affidavit against me. The judge did not allow these documents to be entered. He commented that having a child, even an adult one, swear against another parent can cause significant, long term damage to the family. He also found them to be irrelevant.
This was all done for the purpose of trying to sully my character to the judge. My ex also quoted my “scornedwifeblog” in his affidavit and his lawyer read the example title “How to Handle Hoes like Janice Andrews”. It is a very benign entry just relaying a Beyoncé story but it was chosen to try to embarrass me. Two ways that I think this backfired: 1) Now the judge knows that my ex is the cheater which is another strike against his moral character. 2) The blog, that my ex has tried so hard to get me to halt, is now documented in the Supreme Court of Canada, specifically highlighting Janice Andrew’s name.
