Okay gang...was just thinking... 1. Your step son disappears 2. LE is reported to have stayed at your home 24/7 at one point in time 3. You seem to be in the spotlight 4. Your husband leaves and takes your little one, getting an RO Now then... Curious question... Does anyone know "who" owns the KH and TH family home? I read elsewhere (I couldn't get into the records to prove it), that KH owns it, but I don't know if TH's name is also on the paperwork as owner. Even so... So...you have had LE at your home. What are the chances of there being bugs in the house? (not talking spidies and things!) Is that legal? IF it is, you are staying in the home, you could be recorded and heard by LE. IF you leave the home, you are vacating the family premises and could end up homeless, so to speak. [In a divorce, the person who leaves the home could end up being the one out of it until the LONG divorce process ends.] All of this in context with another thought... Do you ever talk to yourself (or outloud when you are by yourself)? I surely do... :biggrin: (I might shout at the TV if someone on it says nonsense, I might just say what I think of it and why! I might shout at the computer or LAUGH at it, if I am watching a particular video.) And assuming you have your parents staying with you, might you not talk to them and say your thoughts/feelings OR vent? Bottom line, I don't know that IF there was a chance that my home was being bugged AND I was a possible suspect, that I would want to stay in my home. The whole thing would put just too much pressure on me, guilty or innocent. BUT...what if that home was where I wanted to live -- my only main means to have "my home" over my head, so that I didn't have to go live with my parents? Oh...and I wonder if my car could be bugged too? So, do I invite my parents to my home to give me emotional support, or do I go stay with them? If I leave my home, could it be invaded by my spouse -- they come in and strip me of whatever they want or move back in and I could be out -- afterall, they have an RO against me? Catch 22?
