Steven Ridley has been without his boys for two years. The mother and Steven were together for 3 years, they both worked outside the home, and equally shared it caring for them. In the middle of the night She took the boys and left. Steven has had to jump through hoops trying to see them, and he has exhausted all of his resources. Steven is a very loving father and continues to raise his 6 yr. old daughter from a previous relationship. He has been there from day one with all of his kids. There are so many problems with the MN judicial system in regards to child custody. Although he was with his boys, cared for them and had established a strong relationship with them, the courts say that the mother has all right to the two boys, Xander and Haydn. He misses them so much, and so does their big sister, Zameira. He continues to pay the court ordered support, and has no problem doing so, but he would LOVE to see his boys.
Please help with any thing you can. We need funds to pay attorney fees and court filing fees. A retainer fee for an attorney, is min. $3000 for a custody case. And right now that is so much more then he has.
