It was not long into our marriage that my ex wife decided to leave me and take my son with her. I worked hard to provide for my family and it was, allegedly, this overworking habit of mine that drove my ex wife away. The claim was that I was not home enough and that I was not involved enough in my son's and wife's lives. The usual sad story, I know. I was devastated and naïve and later discovered that a third party was involved. This discovery came months after the legality of the divorce was finalized. The third party and I did make telephonic contact in which he spilled the beans. My ex wife, denies all of the claims as laid out by this third person despite all the evidence.
Anyway, the truth is the truth and only she will know. That is just a background account of my current situation.
I am a teacher at a very good school. The main reason I accepted employment at my current school is for my son to receive the best education that we can possibly afford him as he would automatically be accepted as a benefit of my employment. The sad part is that his mother is unilaterally refusing to allow him to come to my school. She claims distance and therefore impracticality, but I am not so sure. I have met a wonderful lawyer who specialize in such cases and she is very optimistic that my son will win this court battle for a priceless education. I never use that phrase, "priceless education", lightly.
The problem is that my lawyer does not come cheap, as she is very good and sought after, and I have to, unfortunately, cut urgency in order to cut costs. I have raised some considerable money myself in my personal capacity, but I fear that it is not enough.
The case is certainly an open and shut one, but the legal coffer is a small and very limited one. With more funds, I can take more drastic steps and have an even better chance to secure a great education for my son. The kind that he truly deserves.
