Received the opposition brief

I just got my ex-wife appeal brief. She apparently did it herself, without a lawyer. She is a lawyer herself, but she got the court to order me to pay some of her legal fees. She only gets the money if she actually hires a lawyer.

She continues to rely on Marriage of Loh for the principle that the family court judge can force me to pay extra child mother support based on me not having a mortgage. But the Loh decision says that the court has to use income tax figures. I don't see how the case helps her at all.

She thinks that my brief didn't follow the rules, but I am betting that the clerk rejects her brief instead. The appellate clerk has some very silly rules.
