My Name is Haralambos, (Or Harris for short.), I'm a 17 year old male living with my mom alone. I'm sorry for any grammatical errors, I'll try my best to share every detail.
For many years now, my mom has been divorced, and since then, we've been coping with an economical problem, but we were alright, around 2012-13, my dad has been delaying his child support for reasons "unknown", he's always been denying my mom's calls, and sometimes even mine when she asked me to call him and tell him to give us the money.From that, we've been delaying our rent payments (We live in a flat.), On top of that, my mom has a low salary job as well (around 700 euros/m, sometimes even 600-ish.), Some months, because of my dad, we've had to literally count coins so we can get through the month, there were even days we couldn't afford to eat. With the months passing by, our rent payment was increasing, and slowly becoming a more serious problem.
2016, around fall, September, my mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and had to do an emergency surgery in October, her recovery took almost half a year till' summer and she wasn't even working, I started working to help her while she's recovering at a hotel as a waiter. I did my best to support her financially, physically, and psychologically. Thank god cancer went away and we hope not to encounter it again.
2017-Present, the owners of our apartment have had enough coping with us, and had the grand idea to sue us, I don't know the details. We had to get our lawyer and fight for us. Meanwhile, my dad is still delaying his payments by the months and owes us over a thousand euros, he's been denying our calls, while he's posting on Facebook how happy he is with his new family and my step-sister, My mom decided to sue him for not paying us. Continuing, today, my mom got a call from our lawyer telling her that they came to a conclusion, we don't have to owe the owners anything, if we move out in three months, in May, that is.
What happened today made me make this Campaign.The worst thing a son could ever see is his own mother cry, and I can't stand that anymore! I'm hoping we find a way to finally live in peace, without all this pressure coming unto our lives.
