Hello my name is Christine Vega I am 23 years old and I’m trying to earn enough money to help me get my own place.Right now I tell everyone I live with my mother but the truth is I haven’t been living with her for 5 years. Instead I have been living with my significant other in that time. I have a 6 year old son and am currently going to court for visitation which i would like to change. My son lived with me since he was born until two years ago his father decided to pop back into our lives.
My sons father and I were together since I was 14 years old and I got pregnant with my son two years later. Towards the end of the pregnancy my sons father became very verbally abusive this eventually became physical abuse after giving birth to our son. He would knee me in the stomach whenever we disagreed about the smallest of things like how we should save .I wasn’t allowed to do anything without having to get his approval. I broke up with him around the time my son turned two because he was constantly threatening to cheat on me. So I started checking his phone when he was asleep and found out he already was cheating on me. That night I will never forget because while I was upset and already suffering from postpartum depression I never though I would break up with him i was too scared of being a single parent and the troubles that come with it not to mention i was not prepared for it at all.
My sons father ended up moving back in with his grandparents so that he can get visitation rights and instead of fighting for that he instead chose to continue verbally harassing me any time I would try to talk to him about our son and his health to this very day.He came to my house one day he was supposed to pick our son up and instead of doing that he argued with me and we ended up in a physical altercation in front of my son.
He be little’s me in front of our son and does not follow any of the terms we have set in our court ordered agreement. Not to mention I took him to court for him to end up with physical custody and the day that he did which was around September my son was four at the time so I was in the process of signing him up for Pre-k and i told him everything I had done for our son the papers that proved he got his shot and told him about his dental stuff that he needed to get his teeth cleaned once a month. That first year he didn’t listen to me about the dental maintenance and my son had six cavities and had to do two root canals before he turned 5.Then next year he lost our sons social security and birth certificate and hadn’t replaced it until now.
He has fought for physical custody of our son not so HE could raise him because he does not even live with our son currently. My son lives with his father 70+ grandparents who are very old school and are raising my son instead of me and his dad. His dad only wants physical custody for two reasons in my opinion. The first being that his grandparents have provided him with his own place to say with little to no cost to him. The second reason is because he gets to claim him every year he has him.
I really am over sharing and too Be honest talking about this is very embarrassing because the fact of the matter is I lost my son two years ago and gave up on myself at the same time. Losing my son took the part of me that made me WANT to get up in the morning. I love being a mother it’s just something I’ve always wanted but I never thought this would be the out come and I am hoping I can change that. Once I have my own place I can finally fight for physical custody.
I’m hoping for at least $20,000 I think its a good enough amount to find and keep an apartment until I finish school and start working.
This is what im hoping to get not this place specifically but a two bedroom paypal.me/Fujiila?locale.x=en_US
