A Day in Court for My Kids

I don't like to talk too much about the conflict in my life, but right now I feel it is time to break the silence.  For the last three years, my kids and I have been dealing with the aftermath of a high-conflict divorce.  A process which tapped out all of my resources from family, and has left me reeling financially.  

I thought all of those days of courtrooms and lawyers were behind me.  However, the conflict still continues.  For the last year, my kids and I have been once again going through the court system.  I am unable to afford an attorney, and though I'm a fairly smart guy, I am clueless when it comes to knowing how to navigate the landscape of litigation.

It has come to a point where I need to ask for help from friends, family, strangers, and anyone else who wants to end this drama and help out a family going through some rough times.

I need $4,000 within the next two weeks to pay for a retainer on an attorney I am confident will help put these legal matters to rest once and for all.  This will allow my kids and I a life without conflict, so that we can begin to heal and live normal lives.

I'm in over my head and need a Professional to take care of business.  My kids are struggling.  I am struggling.  And if you know anything about me, you will know that I don't ask for help lightly.  I do my best to be a good dad, a great friend, and not bother anyone as I try to live a healthy life in the best possible way.

It is time to get tough and put these years of conflict behind me, and I need your help to do it.  Otherwise, I am out of my element. They say that a man who represents himself in court has a fool for an attorney.  I need to stop fooling around and help my family to get on with their lives.

Your support will mean a chance for some great kids who are struggling to have a chance at growing up in a healthy environment, to become well-adjusted adults, and contributing members of society.  For me, it will mean that I can breathe easy again with the assurance that my family no longer has to be wrung through the system over and over again.  It will mean that I can move on with my life instead of being at the mercy of a system that is broken.  It will mean that finally justice can be served for some people who just want a chance at happiness.
