My name is April and have been trying to win 50/50 physical custody of my 9-year-old daughter for the past few years. Upon separation from my husband in 2014, my ex-husband demanded he keep her when I came out as being gay and that i was leaving him. When filing the divorce, after much negotiating, we put a clause in our divorce paperwork that we would revisit custody in a year while i got a chance to get settled. Unfortunately, i was bamboozled. One year later, he would still not share physical custody and I've been fighting ever since. I have a visitation schedule in place and we enjoy our time together, but it's just not enough to parent her the way she needs to be. This past year, I've gone back to court a second time. I am in the final stretch and have spent more than $10k in legal fees leaving me completely strapped. I need $10k more to continue with the case. Most important in all of this is that I love my little girl. She is clever, beautiful and funny and joy of my life. She wants to spend more time with me, as well. There is no reason I shouldn't have 50/50 physical custody. Please help me if you can. Anything amount you can donate will be sincerely appreciated. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
