Domestic Violence Custody Case

I am raising money right now because I am in desprate need of a lawyer and I have tried every avenue I possibly can. I am trying to get full custody of my 4 year old son. His dad has been physically and emotionally abusing him for the last year and I have tried keeping him away as much as possible. It has come to the time that I was forced to get a protection order against his dad, and once that happened everything has gone so fast and I am in need of paying a lawyer a retainer of $2,800 by this next monday (06/09/2014). I have applied for the pro bono group for Domestic Violence. However, bc the case is so soon and the judge will not approve to move it back bc this is a time sensitive case I have very little time to come up with the money. The pro bono group interviewed me and said I am a strong candidate, but it would be impossible to find a lawyer to represent me in such a short time. I have asked around and used every avenue that anyone has given me and no one can help. Please any donations will help towards the cause. My little guy needs to be protected!
