Hello from Hawaii! I’m on vacation right now, but thanks to the magic of scheduled posts (and finishing the entire chapter ahead of time), this page is going up on time. 🙂

Thanks for all the excitement on the first page of this chapter – I’m happy to be posting again after taking a break to get ahead!


Panel 1 (Imogen’s lawyer slides papers across the desk to Imogen)
Lawyer: Almost halfway through separation period before you can file for divorce. I’ve reviewed the first settlement offer from Mr. Dawson’s lawyer, here.

Panels 2+3 (Imogen reads, then looks up, unimpressed)
Imogen: …that’s it?

Panel 4 (Lawyer leaning forward to explain)
Lawyer: Unsurprisingly, he’s arguing for equal parenting time to not have to pay child support.
Imogen: He wants to be a parent now? The kids’ve been living with me full time since I left!
Lawyer: I think he believes that by moving out with Ms. Koenig, you’ve abandoned the marriage and children.

Panel 5 (Imogen rolling her eyes)
Lawyer, off-panel: …but, luckily, that’s not how it works. If you can provide a safe environment, it doesn’t matter if you’re living with a girlfriend or seeing a different one every night a week.
Imogen: Oh, geez.
