The “X” was still communicating with my friend on Facebook. She posted on Facebook about a trip to Las Vegas and he “just happened to be going that same weekend.” What a coincidence. The problem– it was on his visitation weekend.
In their Facebook communications, he eluded that he was taking my daughters out of state- to Las Vegas for the weekend. Transporting the girls out of state was against court order. The thought of him with my daughters in Las Vegas was more than I could handle. I knew this was the time to blow my cover. I knew that he would find out that we were tracking him on Facebook but I didn’t care anymore. I had more than enough evidence by this point in time.
In his correspondence, he had mentioned that he wanted to show them the sights of Vegas– the grandeur. He was bringing his Aunt Noreen who would watch them at night while he “played”. He said, “it kind of reminds me of Chevy Chase’s Vacation“.
I emailed him and called off the visitation.
He threatened me with everything– police, court, etc. I still have the original voice mails saved on my phone. He went off the deep end as he knew he had been caught in a string of lies pertaining to who he was, the houses he (didn’t) owned, the businesses he (didn’t) owned and the facade of a good dad who was a high-roller. Game over.

History of One Mom’s Battle: In 2009, One Mom’s Battle began with one mother, (Tina Swithin), navigating the choppy waters of a high-conflict divorce in the Family Court System. Since then, it has turned into a grassroots movement reaching the far corners of the Earth. Tina’s battle spanned from 2009 – 2014 during which time she acted as her own attorney. Ultimately, Tina was successful in protecting her daughters and her family has enjoyed complete peace since October 2014 when a Family Court commissioner called her ex-husband a “sociopath” and revoked his parenting time in a final custody order.
Tina Swithin: Divorcing a narcissist? Tina Swithin’s books are available online at Amazon (print, Kindle or audio format). Each year, Tina offers life-changing weekends of camaraderie and healing at the Lemonade Power Retreat. Tina also offers one-on-one coaching services and a private, secure forum called, The Lemonade Club, for those enduring high-conflict custody battles.
