To you random internet stranger:
Dan and myself are looking for help. Dan had a really severe fall down the stairs a few months back and as a result, has not been fit to work for quite a long while now. However, due to the way Court orders and deadlines work, Dan *has* to make a 2000 dollar payment by March 6, or he’ll be sent to jail, regardless of how injured he is.
We’ve put together everything we have, effectively both of our tax refunds, and have come up with 800$ so far. Dan is in need of 1200 more dollars by March 6th so that he does not get sent to jail. Currently he is working with his doctors to help fix the issues he has with his injuries, but he’s unlikely to recover substantially enough to work until February of next year.
Even so the courts declared that he is required to pay this amount even though he has been working with his doctors every step of the way.
I have some money put the the side already but the 1200 is what is left. My PayPal is email@example.com. Any little bit helps in this situation. If you can’t help monetary wise a share goes a long way.
We’ve tried looking for other solutions, and have consulted with several lawyers. None of them can guarantee any kind of success that doesn’t involve us spending the money on the payment, and most of them are more expensive than the amount Dan actually owns when they’re even interested in taking the case at all.
At this point, the situation doesn’t really give us a choice. We can either pay a lawyer hundreds of dollars an hour to build up a potentially successful defense, or we can pay what the court has ordered him to pay.
We both appreciate any help and I wish that we did not have to even do this.
