legal expenses for time share

I am reaching out through here as a last resort. My sons journey through his personal hell started 2 years ago when the mother of his kids thought the best way to split was to involve him in major legal litigation because she does not want him in his children's lives. This person is a lawyer and self represents themselves so she knows her way around the legal system. Her tactics are to delay and file frivolous filings to both waste time and make his lawyer work that much harder and for his lawyers fees to continue rising. To give you a better idea, these past 2 years have been solely for time sharing and equal custody. They weren't married so there is no having to divide assets or anything. Solely time sharing and custody.  He is a very good father that wants to spend as much time with his kids as possible. He has have been fighting tooth and nail to have equal time with his kids. He is the total opposite of the father stories we have all heard where they do not want to spend any time with the kids or as some have done, just relinquish all parental rights. His father was not in the picture as much as my son wanted him to be and he has vowed he would always be there for his children.
 With my help we have been able to keep the fees manageable up until recently when he received the last invoice which totaled 25 thousand for a total of 75 thousand dollars in legal fees and it does not appear to be over just yet. He also received an email that the children's mother has filed an appeal to the July 8 final ruling which granted him equal time sharing with the kids. You are reading that right. She is fighting for him NOT to have equal time with the children. I am a retired woman living on my retirement and trying to help my son as much as i can. I was able to take out an equity loan against my house to help him with his legal fees. I am a simple person living a humble life. He is a blue collar maintenance man and does not make enough to continue fighting with what he makes. This is exactly what she wants. For him to lose his attorney because we can no longer afford to pay and she can completely run him over in court and take his time with his kids away.
 Her hatred towards my son does not stop there. She tried to use my taking care of the kids on their time off of school as a reason he cannot take care of the kids. She has purposely kept the kids from my son so they would not be with me while he was working his job. She does not even want the kids to spend time with their grandmother.
  I hope this story gets around on its own to the good people out there that believe children should have both parents in their lives whether they are together or apart and that is what he is fighting for. Kids need their parents equally. 
 I will try and respond to messages as best I can.
 I will end my story here and wish everyone nothing but well wishes in this chaotic year. Anything that is donated is greatly appreciated. I, my son, and the children thank you as your help will help us continue to fight to keep our time together.
God bless
