My name is Loriana and I am seeking financial assistance towards costs associated in my quest for shared legal and physical custody of my children (twins) aged 2 years. Currently, I am permitted to see my children fewer than 7 days a month, have temporarily been denied legal rights by my ex partner and I am, nevertheless, contributing to their needs on a monthly basis - which I have been doing willingly for a year and a half. Due to the fees related to obtaining justice for the children, I am concerned that someday they will have to ask me ''Why did you give up on us?" No child should ever be put in a position to ask such a question, so I hope to resolve this costly and distressful circumstance respectfully through the family court system.
Your support will assist toward allowing my children the opportunity to receive the love and emotional support they deserve from both their mothers.
Further background: My partner and I were in a relationship for 6 years, and during that time we welcomed our twins - daughter and a son. Since their birth, I have been their second parent. Due to unfortunate circumstances we never got married. Even so, we raised our children together as any nurturing family would, including play dates, enrollment in school, family vacations, doctor’s visits, swimming lessons, and family dinners. We were a family in every sense of the word.
Approximately 3 months ago, our relationship ended. Since that time, my former partner, has stated that she has been our children’s only parent. Since I have no biological connection to our children, there is no clear legal provision or protection of our children’s rights for equal contact with both mothers. I certainly do not object to supporting my children financially but I sincerely believe our children should be allowed equal access to both of their parents.
I have tried every amicable avenue including face-to-face discussions with my former partner regarding what is best for our children as they love me very much - a very ''healthy'' parenting plan was proposed to her with no success so I have been left with no option but to approach the legal system for support. This could be a very lengthy legal process which would exhaust my financial resources, and my quest is nowhere close to being resolved. I am determined to do whatever possible to restore the rights of our children and to recover my role as an equal parent. This legal situation is also to ensure the law is consistent with today’s society and science to reflect the reality that a “legal parent” is not strictly a matter of biology.
I am requesting any financial support you might be able to offer. If you are able, please donate to help cover the ongoing costs associated with this ordeal.
Thank you for caring, for sharing my story, and for doing whatever you can to help our children to have a happy life with both their moms.
I am not a charitable organization. Donating to my legal fund is strictly a gift and can not be used as a tax deduction.
This page is intended to support my cause only. I do not wish to debate my case online and therefore all negative, disparaging comments will be deleted. My only intentions are to raise awareness and to request financial assistance to navigate the legal process respectfully.
