I am a divorced mother that has been going through a custody battle for almost 3 years. The case has been postponed many times due to “games” my ex and his lawyer plays. In the meantime, I have been bullied in unimaginable ways by my ex and he has been manipulating me and our children throughout this process. My ex has been successful at getting our son to turn against me and he is now doing the same with our daughter. My son is now over 18 but I continue to pray that he will come to me and know that I will welcome him with open arms no matter what and at any time. But my daughter is still a minor and she doesn’t understand all of what is going on but it is affecting her. I recently decided to get she and I a family therapist to help us through this and also with the parent alienation that is starting to show. I am fighting for custody because if I don’t, I will no longer have a relationship with my daughter which would devastate me. I am up against a controlling narcissist that is putting me and our children (extended family too) through this chaos because at the end of the day he doesn’t want to pay child support or be in the system. I’m confident my lawyer has the talent to show that I am the better parent, but I have to be able to pay her and I am severely struggling. Please help me.
Thank you for reading my story and for any help you provide.
