So, we saw an attorney last Friday, and will hire him officially soon. He's already phoned the attorney for DH's partners and let them know that DH will not accept their joke of an offer. He's asked for a valuation of the company, will demand severance in order to settle also. The senior partner, majority shareholder, has a fiduciary duty to protect the interests of the minority shareholders, and so, the threat to restructure salaries to squeeze out DH would be illegal come to find out. Which makes sense tome. Only, corporate law was my absolute worst subject in law school and I've done absolutely nothing in it since. Which is why we're hiring the attorney that we are. He sued my previouis employers and took that case up to the supreme court, he's pretty much a shark and DH likes him and my former boss hates him...so he's hired. :)
Anyway, things look much better on that front and we are hoping to at least get back DH's investment plus some severance.
As far as my search goes, I've sent out some targeted letters and resumes, and am working with an attorney employment firm probably. They assist with the letter writing and also have access to many more contacts than I could find online or advertised. I'm also thinking of switching careers since I've been forced out of work right now. I'd like to try teaching at a university if that would be possible. Even if to start it is only part time as an adjunct. That was always my favorite part of each job, teaching and training people. So, we'll see if anything pans out.
My mom and her husband were here over memorial day, and that was really nice. They took us out to eat downtown to our favorite restaurant, where we had our first date, and we also took the kids. We planted the flower bulbs I had that needed to be planted soon, and hung out around the house. It was very nice having her here even if it was only for a few days.
So, now we are fully into the job hunt. DH has also applied a few places and has gotten calls back from most of them, so hopefully things will pan out soon.
Thanks to all of you for your support and good wishes. I'll keep you posted with anything new, especially with the prior patners! THey absolutely disgust me. Our attorney says he gets about 4-5 cases per year just like this, I guess it's not at all uncommon but it is just sooooo unbelievably sleezy!!
