Heart Broken Need Relief

My wonderful son Roman is just 3 years old. He was born March 31st 2011. He was diagnoised in December of 2012 with Autism, he was also diagnoised with CAD (childhood Apraxia of Speech) in June of this year. He is trying to talk but still nonverbal at this point. I try to focus all of my time on him. He means everything to me. I'm a single Mom and It is very hard for me to find the time to work but I make do by working nights and weekends. I take care of my Son and my Mother who physically cannot work.

I am doing the best I can and I would do anything for my son.
Roman currently goes to Pre-K in the autism early childhood program. Roman currently receives 10-12 hours a week of therapy, including ABA Therapy (Autism related), OT (for hand stregth and skills), and Speech Therapy. I was trained and also tutor my son 3-5 times a week. His constant extra out of pocket medical expenses are tough, but the toughest part is keeping up with all of the appointments and progress. And just the emotional weight of keeping up.

Though all of this, I have been hit with a lawsuit. Roman's absentee father is suing me. I will be defending myself and my son for custody as well as keeping his last name the same as mine. I have raised him alone since birth. As soon as I recieved a judgement for child support in June of this year, he sues me. I haven't even gotten the first child support payment. I am asking for help with 8,000 in legal expenses for family court. My son does not have a relationship with his father and he is 2k miles away from us. For Roman to travel at this point in his life would drastically hurt his progress and what's important right now.. his prognosis for his future. I love him too much to lose him or see his future hurt. This has been the hardest time in my life. Please help me continue to try to put my son first and fight for him.
