My name is Jessica, I am a stay-at-home-mum and I am a mother of two adorable boys of 4 and 7 years old.
I never should have appealed to your generosity to get out but here I have no choice and I have my back to the wall as I risk losing the custody of my children if I can’t find the financial funds for relocate my children and I to my country, in France.
I am 34 years old, I am divorcing and I live alone in England with my children for two years.
I married at 24.
For the career of my husband I left everything, I gave up everything in France, studies, friends, family in order to follow him in many countries, the latest in England.
In 2017, he abandoned the children and I in England to live in the Netherlands and started a new life there.
He applied for divorce and was forced by the judge to duty relief in England what he refuses to do for France compelling me to stay with the children in England.
I ruined myself in court fees to get custody of the children that he wanted in the Netherlands, I sold all my personal belongings that could generate some money, unfortunately it is not enough.
To be able to return to France, I need financial means to cover the expenses of attorney fees, moving, the renting of an apartment (agency fees and deposits) and the purchase of modest furniture (I live in a furnished flat) otherwise I could not come back to France with my children to build a professional life allowing me to take care of my children.
Unfortunately, I can not stay at my mother’s because she lives in a small apartment with my 90-year-old grandmother with Alzheimer's.
The costs of the next audience for my departure from England are too expensive for me and my family who has so far helped me can no loger help me as they are too modest.
I fight every day but my situation despairs me. Every day I try to be strong, to believe in the future, to fight, to keep hope but I am bogged down.
It's hard to win when you can not afford it.
In England, I am alone, I have no friends, no family, no job, despite everything I try to bring my children a little joy and serenity in their daily life but the anxiety goes back every day on the surface.
My ex-husband drowns me under court fees.
I have no financial support, I am helpless that is why I call for your help and your generosity.
Thank you for having taken the time to read my message and thank you from the bottom of my heart for those who will participate in escaping from this life of prisoner that my ex husband imposed on me for 2 years.
I will never forget the help you have given my children and me.
