Domestic Violence is NOT ok

This is my oldest daughter Valerie. She has been in an abusive relationship for 14 years. She has put up with being Degraded, hit, kicked and made to feel as if she's nothing. She has been called the most horrible names in front of her kids that her oldest son who is 10 is following in his dads shoes and calling her exactly what he’s heard his dad call his mom for years. She finally decided enough is enough and moved out into her own place with her kids. She then decided to move here to Colorado from Az with her children to live with me, her stepdad, and niece that we are raising. And as a controlling abusive, alcoholic man always does, he went to the courts to keep her and the kids from leaving the state of Az. 
All she wants is to be where she has the support of all her family as she has no one in Az. She wants to better her and her Childrens's life. She is in need of a lawyer which she nor us can afford. This court date is set for November 13,so we are all scrambling to figure out how to pay for this lawyer. She has the courage that her sister Tabatha never had to just be done. I'm so proud of her strength to do what she knows she must do in order for her and her children to get away from the toxic relationship. Please if you can find it in there heart to help with any amount we would be forever grateful. We are running out of time.
