Child custody fund for Joseph

Please help support my legal effort for fair and rightful custody of my four-year-old son Joseph. The last day I saw Joseph was on February 1st under the impression that I would see him again a week later because there was a verbal agreement to split the time between his mom and I every other week.

On February 22nd I was surprised to receive a suit for primary custody of Joseph from his mom in a county in Texas.  My ex-girlfriend had secretly moved, taking Joseph with her to Texas without a proper custody agreement in place, and we have only 20 days to respond with legal action.

In order to be reunited with my son and to fight for fair and rightful custody, I have to hire two lawyers—one in Texas and one here in Alaska.  The initial quote to engage them is $7,500. 

Please see the attached videos of my happy and loving little boy.  Any and all financial support is very much appreciated. Quyanaqpak!
