This is to help a single mom,who works full time, pay for a lawyer to help her appeal a child custody case.

I am a single mom who has faced a long up hill battle, my husband filed for divorce after I told him I was pregnant, sent me texts of "we would be divorced if you were not pregnant" or "you being pregnant is not an excuse" (I would hang up on him because the baby was kicking so hard feeling my stress go up). Jump forward 3 years of a man lying about his income to not pay much in child support but found time to take his new wife to football games in other states and on vacation. Meanwhile I was working 32 hrs a week paying for health insurance, that he was ordered to pay. So for the past 3 years I have been trying desperately to dig out of a hole and get back on my feet. Things have been hard. I had to put my 2 cats down in 2 months because one got cancer (Fred was 11) and went downhill so fast and the other came home on night with a blocked bladder that caused his kidneys to quit (Bug was 8). So lots of pushed back down the hill. then the doctor found questionable cells at my last pap and going thru the process of determining if they are cancerous has been difficult. I went to court with full expectation of the court being on my side because of the state statutes. I dont do drugs nor have I ever, I am not in trouble with the law and I hardly go out to a bar. The statutes were on my side, the lawyer made sure that each of her questions pertained to the statutes. But in the end I was penalized for being a single mom who works. Also because his new wife has kids my kids would be better off with step siblings. I ask how about the bond they have with their mom? So now I am desperately looking for ways to raise money to help pay for a lawyer who can fight this fight for me.
