Dear caring hearts,

I've never been one to seek help, but the urgency of this situation weighs heavy upon me, and I find myself unable to bear the burden alone any longer.

Currently, I'm going through a divorce. The divorce proceedings began suddenly when my husband applied for divorce, claiming he was unhappy, out of the blue. This came as a shock to me. He abruptly left me and our 2-year-old son just two days before Christmas 2022. His employees entered the house and assisted him in packing his belongings. I was told to leave the property with our son because he was in the way. I drove to the food shop car park and sat in the car with my 2-year-old son. It was raining, and I was in tears while my child was sleeping. I couldn't understand what was happening. Upon my return to the property, all valuable items were gone.

Despite my attempts to communicate with him amicably, he refused and became hostile. He left me and our son with no money in the bank account, took my car (which he didn't even drive — he gave it to his employee), terminated my employment (as I had been working in his company). Additionally, my parents invested with him in cryptocurrency years ago, and now he refuses to return their investment.

On top of that, he has stopped all financial support, including helping to pay rent, which my low income salary doesn’t even cover half of. I have contacted local authorities, but the laws are shocking. They won’t help me until myself and our son are legally made homeless.

I had to hire a private detective to locate him as he was concealing his home address to avoid court proceedings. Upon receiving court letters, he claimed he never received them, prompting me to hire a process server to deliver documents in person.

The child arrangement court hearing took place last summer, but he didn't show up because he was on holiday with his new girlfriend, showing total disregard for his own child and avoiding his responsibilities. Our son has never received Christmas or birthday presents since he left. I have received no financial support from him for our child's food, clothes, toys, or nursery expenses, nor is he paying child maintenance. All this financial burden falls solely on my shoulders to cover.

In September, the court hearing concluded without reaching a resolution. My husband failed to submit the necessary documents. Once again, I was left to wait another 3 months for the next court hearing with no financial help.

In November, as I arrived at work, an unknown number began to ring on my phone.. It was a woman, unmistakably his mistress. She confessed that she is the one he cheated with and has been living with since he left me and our son two days before Christmas. She is an escort. That's how they met five years ago in the strip club. After hearing this news, I felt like dying. It was another shock in my life. I had no idea who I was married to.

She provided me with some related documents for the court and also provided pictures of their holidays; it turns out they've been traveling abroad every month and even went on a Eurotrip with a camper van for 7 weeks. Meanwhile, my husband continues to lie to the court, claiming he lives with his mother or stays at his 'friends' house and has no money in his bank account. While he continues to live in this massive house, renovating it and preparing for purchase after the divorce, indulging in a lavish lifestyle and spending the money we had saved, I am left in financial hardship. I am alone in caring for our child with no support, and I don't have any family in this country.

The court session scheduled for November was cancelled due to the unavailability of the judge and postponed for another two months. Once again, I feel let down by the system as I am left waiting for the next court hearing with no financial assistance.

In the court hearing in December, he showed up again without any documents, following the holidays he had just taken. He walked into the courtroom, having undergone a hair transplant, showing no shame, and continuing to avoid his responsibilities.

Finally, the long-awaited postponed court hearing takes place in January. However, to my disbelief, the judge comes unprepared, stating that he has not received the documents. How could this happen? I had sent not one, but two hard copies via post, as well as via email. Once again, I felt let down by the system, which is supposed to help. Once more, no resolution was reached in court. The only outcome attained was the instruction for him to pay maintenance; nevertheless, he is disobeying the court order and refusing to comply with it.

My life over the past year has been a descent into the depths of hell, financial hardship, suffocated by the relentless emotional and mental torment inflicted by my husband. He scoffs at court orders, blatantly defying them without consequence, all because I lack legal representation. I'm drowning in paperwork, desperately struggling to navigate the legal maze alone, only to see it brushed aside without a second glance, with no assurance that it's even being properly reviewed. The stress is suffocating, an ever-present weight crushing down on me.

I'm reaching out to you with a plea from the depths of my heart. I need your unwavering support to reclaim what was cruelly taken from both me and my son. Here I am, standing alone in the battlefield of injustice, desperately fighting for our rights.

I have been trying so hard to fight this on my own, so I kept all the pain to myself, but I can't do it alone anymore. I need to tell the story. Every night, I keep telling my brain, 'Please stop overthinking, I'm tired.' I just keep going, not because I want to. Trust me, all of me wants to just stop, but I have no choice. I am healing because my son and I deserve justice.

If you wish to connect or help in any other way, please feel free to reach out to me [email protected]. Your support and understanding mean the world to me. Thank you for being there in this challenging time. Every generous donation will be dedicated to the solicitor, as I strive with all my heart to attain justice.

Sincerely,


Monika
