Sometimes things happen in life that you'd never expected to turn out the way they did. Our economy is changing, world politics are unpredictable and nature contributes with uncertainty as well.
News continuously show us how unfair and out of place decisions in politics, the economy and in life are taken. How innocent people mostly children suffer from the greed of this world.
Yet everyone things, its far far away from the comfort of my own home, and it won’t affect me, as long as I have a decent job, behave according to law and be a good citizen of the world.
This was me, 5 years ago. I would never have expected that the past 5 years, changed my entire perception of the world and confronted me and my beloved ones despite a secure income and doing the utmost for the family to the point where nobody could help anymore and money becomes the only way out of the situation.
I was married to a man who openly swear to take me down if I ever got divorced. He swore to take everything away from me. Be it my reputation, career, money and finally my kids. I’m single mom of two 5 and 13. Both are like twins. They belong together and feel connected. They suffered until my split with the father of the youngest tremendously. He blackmailed me for money and harming my reputation and career several times. After a struggle of 3 years I took the courage and got him out of our house by paying him 8000 Euros.
Through this situation I got in a very instable financial situation and it should worsen over the next 2 years until today.
Today I’m fighting a custody battle for my youngest son, as he wants to take him away, separate the siblings and wants to take everything that I have from him.
He convinced the judge being the responsible caring dad, who lives in a healthy relationship is understanding and supportive of his ex-wife offering her help to support the child care by jumping in whenever needed. In essence he tries to control me and forbid me to have baby sitters and announced in a letter through his lawyer that he would keep a close eye on me, my job and situation. We had planned to move 300 miles south in order to be less obliged to traveling, plus having a fresh start for my daughter. This lawsuit created additional trouble in double rent, double commuting costs and cancelation fees for apartment & logistics.
To Whom It May Concern:
We need the funds to support our custody battle. I’m currently in the situation, that I even can’t pay a lawyer to fight for the rights of my family.
I work as an executive in a well-known global enterprise, however, my salary does not cover the additional costs of lawyer, coach for the kids, additional money needed to balance school fees, debts from marriage, which were signed only by me, as my ex-husband never had a permanent job.
The funds will be exclusively used to, guarantee the stable environment for the kids. Namely the school for my oldest, daycare for my youngest and paying the debts to my former lawyer. Two days ago, they announced to file a lawsuit against me, as I wasn’t able to pay the last invoice, after having already spent 20k on the entire process since April this year.
No bank would give me a loan, as I have negative records, due to former debts from marriage. In Germany this is almost impossible for the subsequent 5 years to get money, if you once fell into debt.
I’m very desperate on how to cover for the continuously increasing costs of this lawsuit. I’m working hard on additional projects like writing a novel, crafting new business ideas, trying to find investors and supporters and looking for additional streams of income by selling vintage designer fashion, but it is not possible to keep up with the rising costs.
I need to find a lawyer to defend me as soon as possible as I'm currently without any legal support + I need money to pay my cost for school and rent. If I can't succeed in this last round of battle with a good lawyer and a stable environment as well financially for my kids, it might happen that I will loose them.
Happy to give you more details via PM, as well about potential ways to offer a private loan. Any help appreciated and welcome!
