I am facing a custody battle, attempting to maintain the 50/50 custody that has been maintained for 9 years, defending against a suit by my daughter's mother to take full custody. As anyone that knows me knows, I have always been an integral, positive, and active part of my daughter's life, playing a parenting role that is at least equal in contribution to her mother's.
There is a conflict of interest with the only legal aid resource for custody cases, so other than very general advice from said resource, I am facing this without legal advice, let alone representation. There is a settlement conference scheduled for March 15th 2019, and the trial is set for May 10th 2019. I also have to pay half of the $1,000 bill for a Guardian Ad Litem that the court is assigning to my daughter.
With a small income that consists solely of Social Security Disability, I am hoping to raise funds through this medium to help in obtaining legal representation and in paying my share of the Guardian Ad Litem bill. Any contribution is greatly appreciated.
