About a year ago I got out of a very toxic and abusive relationship and I was lucky enough to move back to the US from Europe with my four year old son. Unfortunately I was then caught up in an international custody battle with my son’s father that ended up being incredibly financially draining. After months and months of mediation my son’s father relocated to the US and the custody battle is thankfully finished. But this unexpected legal battle has left me absolutely drowning in debt with no resolution in sight. I have a decent job but my paycheck is no match for the debt I’m trying to keep up with month in and month out. As a single mother I am trying everything in my power to provide for my son but it seems to be a losing battle at this point. I am legally bound to my current location as part of our settlement which has left me isolated in a city where I know almost no one and am half way across the country from my family. It has turned into a heartbreaking situation that feels hopeless. I hate to ask for help from people I don’t know but at this point I figure I don’t have much of an option. Any help would be more than appreciated.
