For Gail






Thank you for reading about Gail’s circumstances and for your compassion.  If the justice system worked for women in her situation then we wouldn’t be asking for your help; until that happens, though, we hope you’ll contribute to ensure Gail doesn’t lose custody of her son and gains the child support that her (soon-to-be-ex) husband has so far denied. Gail has not asked for help, but her friends have insisted after witnessing the reality of a legal system that fails to sufficiently protect women prepared to end an unhealthy marriage.  The financial reality is that while Gail’s husband can afford a bulldog of a lawyer to destroy her name and reputation and take her son away from her, she cannot. The stakes are high enough that it’s clear she needs a lawyer who can ensure she gains sole custody of her son; she has been his primary caretaker, the one who has ensured his safety and emotional well-being for the past 13 years. She has secured a place to live and a full time job (putting her college goals—she’s just one year away from obtaining her undergrad degree in education—on hold) to provide for her family; without a very good lawyer to protect against her spouse’s hard-hitting one, though, she might lose custody of her son.  Please contribute to ensure that this legal battle doesn’t end up being won by the person able to afford a private lawyer.”
