Pick your battles and dont sweat the small stuff. He will be looking for a fight, dont give it to him.
Yes, I don't anticipate much haggling over money. What I do expect is for him to get very angry that I'm asking for sole legal custody and supervised visitations. I was worried about asking for this in the past and whether or not I would be perceived as mean or vindictive, but no more. Situations like this -- where he is a chronically relapsing addict with no job and no home -- are exactly what this is for. Just because he has some extremely efficient enablers doesn't mean I should worry about what he'll think of me when he reads the request.

Yay Florence!
That's awesome. I still struggle with this part of it all. Although, I will say that I struggle THROUGH it.
Way to go!

Exactly! You know your truth, and it doesn't matter what he thinks.
