I have been married for 9 years and have 4 amazing children. The last few years of our marriage have been horrible and getting worse. The verbal abuse and manipulation have become unbearable. My spouse has no desire to keep these fights to ourselves and the verbal abuse has escalated in the presence of our children. In August the abuse went from verbal to physical and my husband was arrested for domestic battery against me while the children were in the home and witnessed the incident. I have spent the last month navigating the legal system in a way I never thought I would have to deal with.
I tolerated a lot from my husband because I did not want to be a single mom and I do not have the financial resources to leave. We made a mutual agreement that I would be a stay at home mom and he would support us financially. I begged my husband for marriage counseling. We have attempted marriage counseling twice and both times it failed. My husband would say all the right things to the counselor but nothing would change at home. Two years ago he demanded I go to counseling and make changes. The downside for him is that I did the work and I now see through his manipulation. I can’t live in an environment like this anymore. I can’t raise my children in an environment like this. They deserve better. The deserve a mom that can and will protect them.
I currently have a domestic violence injunction in place to protect me and the children from my husband. I have full custody of the children for now. I feel heard by the court system!
When this is all done I need to be able to leave this house. I need to be able to stand on my own.
Financially, I have nothing. 9 years of no employment and no savings. He controls all of it. All the money and assets are in his name and I can not access any of it.
I am asking you for help. I am asking a total stranger to help me. I struggle with asking for help. I am asking for $8,000 USD to help me move out and get a place of my own. A safe place for me and my children. Your financial help will cover deposits for housing and utilities and basic furniture. I will look for work to be financially independent. I just need help getting out and getting started.
