I am updating this post. Go read, then read this.
We have reached an agreement between the two of us. One that I feel is fair for all parties. He thinks it's a lot of money but really the alternative is, we go to a judge and he gives me even more. We have a hearing tomorrow to set everything up through the state but now, instead of it being a fight or whatever, we can go in and say we have agreed upon this amount with these terms. The judge will verify and sign the papers and we will be done.
I can't wait.
