Everyone needs a little help every once in a while and I am pretty desperate at this point.
Long story short: My husband and I have been together for almost 7 years, and married for about 3 years. Our marriage was toxic not only for us, but for my kids as well.
Both of my parents have passed away (mom when I was 15, and Dad just a year ago) so I knew that when I decided to leave, I would be doing this on my own.
Since I am the one that left, my husband is fighting me on every little thing, including custody of my son. His dad is taking care of his lawyer fees, so I am left trying to figure out a way to come up with money for a lawyer for myself.
I currently work two jobs, making good money; however, everything I make goes straight to bills. (over $3000/month in bills) I have applied for more credit cards, and personal loans and have been denied for every one. My debt to income is too high.
I’ve tried to receive assistance, and I make too much for that. I am basically left with signing over primary custody of my son so that I will have to pay child support, which I will NEVER agree to.
I am hoping to come up with enough money to at least consolidated my debt so that I can pay for a lawyer.
I just want what is best for my children. They deserve a happy, steady home with both parents.
