july_girl Posted February 14, 2012 Share Posted February 14, 2012 I'm not even sure if it's more "trust" vs "trustworthiness" that I'm aiming for... I have to testify in a hearing regarding a restraining order against a friend of mine brought by a pissed off ex. She wants more money, he can't give it, she can't legally withhold visitation, so she's making up a BS abuse story & asking for a restraining order to keep him away from the kids. I'm being asked to "testify" I guess, (its just a few people, not in a courtroom or anything) about how I've seen him treat the kids, how they act around him, etc. I'm going to tell the truth, of course, which is that I've NEVER seen anything remotely close to abuse that she is claiming; but I'm wondering if there's a phero I could wear that would help project that air of "trustworthy" "confident"... I don't know exactly what I'm trying to say. I'm just worried that I'll be nervous & it will look like I'm trying to 'cover up' something. It's just that I know how much he is depending on me, and a couple of others, to help him out, and I don't want to be the one to screw things up. It's that living in Wyoming thing again, seriously. A woman can do practically anything, drugs, abuse, whatever, & the court won't take the kids away "from their mom"; but all she has to do is accuse the guy & he has to jump through hoops to prove it wrong. I just don't want to be partially responsible for my friend losing his kids just because I get nervous! I hope that this makes sense & sorry I got on my soapbox Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
