Justice Fund

I married for what I thought was love 12 years ago (we were married on 8/8/08). We had three beautiful girls - now ages 9, 7, and now 6 ( this has been going on for over two years now and I will not give up until my children and I are reunited and they are safely back in my care. Because of the spiral and downward trajectory of this case which feels like an assault on motherhood, I have missed several birthdays and other events in the lives of my daughters which has truly been disheartening). At some point our marriage turned. With many instances of physical and emotional abuse, to both myself and my mother, I was forced to separate from my husband. After I filed for divorce, I discovered that he had also been unfaithful. I have heard reports from neighbors now that a young girl is going around the neighborhood with my daughters. We went to custody court and I was unfortunately out-lawyered. The judge granted temporary custody of my 3 girls - Calia, Sophia, and Anya - to my ex by default because after he threw me to the floor and I called 911, I was displaced from my home. Since in his care, my girls have been to the hospital more times in the last seven months then they have in all of their lives. My oldest, Calia, has suffered from panic attacks and has since learned to put on a brave face.  On my visitation days, I have often picked them up unbathed and unkempt. To say my girls are everything to me would be an understatement. His lawyer has been brutal, in defending her client. They have gone so far as to sue me for child support, even though he is a well paid professor.  He has also taken over possession of the house, even though it is OUR home. This is a manipulative man who, I have come to realize, is dangerous and a threat to the future health and emotional stability of my children. I am launching this fundraiser to acquire the level of legal representation that I will need to get my kids back. I also need help to fight for my girls safety with a man I trusted to have children with who endangered my life and the lives of my girls. I am not able to pay for this on my own especially now that COVID19/corona has caused so much turmoil and uncertainty. This is all very humbling for me. I do not like to ask for help. I have kept my situation private - thinking I could handle it and not wanting people to know what I've been going through. I am reaching out to you now, as a last resort, because my daughters desperately need me. I have watched them in fear and deterioration under their father and the court system not doing what was in the best interest from the beginning. I have all the evidence in the form of video, photos, police and court report as I have documented everything from the beginning. All of my husbands accusations against me have been disproven in what has now been a three year struggle for truth and justice. I would deeply appreciate your supporting me and my daughters in the most difficult time of my life. Every dime of your donation would go directly to this cause. Thank you so much.
