Once upon a time a grown woman met a grown man, he was goofy, respectful, listened, and he seemed to have his ish together. After some time he moved in and all was good, a beautiful perfect baby came along and the man said stay at home for a while. They quickly outgrew their living space and located a beautiful home in the country. It was a happy time, but the woman's dog developed severe separation anxiety, and then two weeks before they were planning to move into the country the dog went into kidney failure. He was put down on moving day, the last bit of life before the man was gone.
While life and nesting were happening the woman did not see she was being alienated from her friends and discouraged from spending time with extended family. After several years her sister told her the man was dating things to her family that didn't sound right, things that cast doubt upon her character. Then the bill collectors began to call, and they bore messages that didn't make sense. When things came to a breaking point the man walked away. All of the bills, no means to move, and a beautiful perfect child asking emotional questions; the woman didn't have answers to any of these.
Move she did, the bills she did the best she could with to get by at the time, the child's questions she answered without planting negativity and reassured the little one of a parent's love. A year past with as much overtime as possible and still the old bills were not paid off, some worth more in interest that in principle now that some of those debts have been sold to collection companies.
The woman tired, and disheartened began wondering how fast you have to drive into a tree to end it all quickly and painlessly. Life removed this option by crippling the transmission in her car. A new plan was needed so she made a list, prioritized it for need vs want, timelines, and positive impact on the well-being of her little household. Which brings us here.
I am seeking assistance with legal fees to take back my life. Bankruptcy and divorce with a parenting plan. My daughter needs to see her mama is unstoppable, so she too may grow to become unstoppable. I work full time earning a wage that doesn't qualify for assistance with anything, but never seems enough to make ends meet. The legal process is way beyond my means; I am asking for help with filling fees, document service, and court required classes.
