Frustrated with my sister.....venting!
So, my sister and I are only 18 months apart in age. We've never really been that close though, choosing quite different paths in life.
She is currently engaged to the father of her youngest child. He has a teenager from a previous marriage, and she has kids from a previous relationship as well.
Over the weekend she got herself arrested under the "Social Host Law" because there was a party at her house with 75 people, including teenagers who were drinking. She claims that her fiancé was trying to break it up (the police report says he wasn't) and that she was inside with the younger kids. Initially she said she was sleeping, now she says she wasn't, but didn't know what was happening outside.
She also stated that she needed to take the charge because her fiancé works with children, (he is a school janitor) although she is a licensed CNA!
Now she is texting me nonstop about how unfair it is that she got arrested, that her fiancé's daughter should take responsibility for having the party, etc. Apparently her fiancé's soon-to-be-ex-wife is now taking him back to court because of the situation, so she is asking me what's going to happen, and isn't the ex violating a court order by texting him to say he can't take their daughter until the court date, etc. I am a lawyer, but I don't do any work in family court, so I don't have answers for her which pisses her off.
Of note, my husband represented the fiancé in his divorce for a severely discounted rate, we are actually out money paying his associates to cover it since they haven't paid anything. Now she needs an attorney for the criminal matter, and I suggested a public defender since neither of them makes very much, and they have 4 children to support together. Apparently that's not good enough for her so she hired someone who doesn't do criminal work (and got mad when I suggested that might not be a great idea)
I'm just tired.....tired of her not taking personal responsibility. Tired of the frustration being caused in my own marriage by having to deal with her legal matters. Tired of all the drama!
