Jose

I could not fucking believe what I was hearing in that courtroom. I didn’t know if it was that part where he talked at his new job that he was getting or the fact the he was willing to step up and help out more with Charlie. No the part that pissed me off the most was when the judge decided he could have him one extra day every other weekend. The fuck head already gets him every Friday night to Sunday evening. Now suddenly we are giving him an extra day! Oh and also he is free to see him without supervision and he does not have to get a mental health exam or IQ test. This is absolute bullshit. Jose is by no means the sweet innocent guy he claims to be. He is a liar, a loser and a dead beat. Honestly if it wasn’t for the help from his parents with whom he lives with he will not be able to even support Charlie. He does absolutely nothing for Charlie. I support Charlie all by myself. Michael is more of a father to Charlie then Jose.

Pardon my vulgar language but I just have to get this out there and expose this scumbag for the person he really is. I can't say the relationship started out bad because it didn’t. He was all nice and sweet in the beginning. Once we’ve had Charlie things went downhill fast. He couldn’t seem to keep a job so in fact for most of our 4 year relationship he wasn't working. He was also stealing money from me and me things. I guess he figured I wouldn’t notice that anything was missing. Of course when I questioned him about it he doesn’t seem to know anything at all and thinks somebody else’s the guilty person, and that somebody else came up in the room and took my stuff.

We used to fight with each other like all the time. I don't really remember anymore what about but we were constantly at each other’s throats. One time he took off his Boot and threw it in my direction and it broke the window behind me. Another time he threw his throwing star at my head. That time he got me and it was bleeding pretty bad. I swear I was going to die there was a lot of blood. Then he has the nerve to tell me he's sorry and he'll never do that again because he loves me. His parents told me I should have called the police on him. But like a fool I did not because I believe that he would change.

He had a lot of anger problems. Seems too like he was constantly angry all the time or if he wasn't just a tiniest little thing wouldn't get him going. He was on medication at one point for it but then he just simply stopped taking the meds. This of course was after I left him.

I don't really want to get into detail about the other things that he made me do but basically saying no to sex wasn't an option. It was going to have to be done one way or another whether I liked it or not. If he was in the mood then I had to be too.

Michael was my saving grace to this nightmare of a relationship. If it hadn't been for him I probably still would be with Jose today. I had a big falling out with my dad at the time of Charlie’s birth and I didn't feel like I was welcome back home. Let alone their being space for me as my sister had recently got married and was living there with her husband.

Jose had a few failed relationships between me leaving him and him meeting Julia. We were at the park and I had decided to be nice and let him see Charlie for a little bit. This girl was sitting over by a tree. Jose said she stopped by the park just about every day. I was the one who told him to go talk to her. So yes I hooked up my ex with someone else. I know that may seem weird in a way. So anyways after a while of being together she got pregnant. For some dumb reason out of the kindness of my good heart I decided that it would be a good idea if they moved in with us. That way Charlie could be closer to his dad and we could co-parent. Clearly that was a mistake as I would soon find out. They decided that they would get married. One rule while living with his parents was that we couldn’t get married under their roof. I am very thankful for this because yet again had we have gotten married which we were thinking about at one point who knows what would be happening now. Neither one of them are very cleanly people and the house was always trashed. so we decided we were going to move out and just leave they to fend for themselves. We were also getting a very minimal amount of rent from them. Jose still wasn't working and Julia was only working part-time at my job which I helped her get. I’m starting to think I’m too nice here.

So a little time goes by and they get thrown out of the place that they are staying and thrown out of a friend’s house that they were staying at. They Then get a small apartment. Jose decides to have a friend come over and Julia winds up falling for this guy. So they kicked Jose out and he goes back to live with his parents. I know you’re starting to think hey that sounds familiar but wait it gets better. So her and this guy that is now living at the apartment decide that they're going to move down south with his family. So they move and then a few months later she comes back up to visit her daughter who she left with Jose to care for while she galley vented around with her boyfriend even though she’s technically married. She decided she would take her daughter out for a little bit and then give her back to Jose later in the evening. She wound up stealing her and taking her back down south with her. So she in herself isn’t exactly a nice person either.

I find myself off topic again here so let me get back to it. So how does someone get away with all of this given everything they've done and yet I’m the person that needs to be watched? I couldn’t risk exposing him outright just because it might not have looked good and just looked like I was pointing fingers. The job he was talking about was also a lie too because later on when I had asked him how the job was going he said they had given it to somebody else. So he basically lied about the whole thing to the judge. And then had the nerve to say that Michael gets in the way of him trying to spend time with Charlie. Which is definitely is not true at all.
