My goal is to raise enough money to secure a lawyer to help me fight for custody of my children. I have 2 boys, ages 10 and 6. My ex-wife left the state of (Ohio) and moved to Florida with them before we were divorced. The divorce granted custody of the children to her.
What the court did not know at the time (and neither did I) is how unstable she actually was. In 2 years I have records that show she has lived at at least 5 different addresses. There is public record of 2 evictions and I have talked to 2 of her other landlords who said they made her leave due to non-payment. She also has not maintained steady employment. Because of this I am to provide 60% of the cost of raising them, health insurance, 73% of medical bills and transportation and additional expenses when it is my visitation time.
I have talked to a few lawyers and a couple of individuals who have been through custody battles and they all agree that I have more than enough proof to win custody. The problem is I do not have the money to afford a lawyer. Most lawyers want at least a $2,500 retainer fee and a deposit on top of that. I plan to use any money raised to help with this cost to fight for my kids. I have been there for them since day one and refuse to let them live such an unstable lifestyle. Any help, whether you donate a small sum or share this cause with your friends is appreciated. Thank You!
I also plan to put set up a webpage that breaks down the costs associated with my case and a Twitter feed which gives status updates on the case once I get it moving. I want to be as transparent as possible. And maybe I can be an inspiration to other single dads in the same situation. Thanks again!
I will be setting up a webpage to display some of the activities that have led to this event. I also have set up an email address for people to contact me with comments, questions and suggestions. I am open to all ideas to help me raise more funds so feel free to comment. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you would like to skype, send me a message and we can set up a time. Thanks.
