Retainer for an attorney

I'm reaching out for help in retaining a lawyer to revise my existing parenting plan. My ex has had papers served to me as he is trying for full custody, requesting that I only have two hours of supervised visitation on Saturdays. As many of know, our current arrangement has been in order for over 10 years. It was originally as follows: she is with him for the school week until 4:00pm on Friday and with me throughout the weekend until Sunday at 7:00pm. Over the years, he has taken it upon himself to slowly alter the time her and I have together. The most recent meeting time was set for Friday at 7:00pm to 7:00pm on Sunday.
Since Covid shut down the schools in Washington in March and she had to do virtual learning, our time together was cut from every weekend to only getting 2 weekends with her through May 31st. His reasoning for this is because she lies about doing her homework, at both houses,  and is failing school.  I'm sad to say, we have not been allowed to see each other or even talk to each other on the phone since May 31st as he is claiming I'm an unfit parent. 
I'm not going to go into a rant about how he is as a parent, but I will say I am the best mom I can be. I have two incredibly smart, funny, kind, caring and beautiful young ladies that I have devoted my entire life to. My oldest is 20 and has been very driven and successful in every aspect of her life since she was 13 years old. I could not be more proud of her!  Her sister Kiahna is 14. Let me tell you that she is one of the kindest kiddos I know and can brighten any stormy day just with her presence! Her living situation over the years with her father has not been optimal. It has been very unstable, she has been moved to several schools and in and out of different homes. This has made it incredibly hard for her to make friends and keep up with each classroom's curriculum.
I'm asking for your help!  Anything at all will be appreciated more than I could ever express! I have found a wonderful attorney that is ready to roll! Just as soon as I can get this $5000 retainer together... and that is only the retainer.
Please help me, she deserves to be with her family❤
