help with Lawyer fees kids Custody

Doing this to a friend! 

My friend needs to have custody of her kids and would like to take her ex husband back to court. She has 4 kids, she has had them all there lives, and 2 years ago the   father came back and asked my friend for half custody and she agreed for the sake of the kids. That ended up being a HUGE mistake,  his wife abuses the kids Mentally, locks them in a room and tells them shehates them. The father does nothing. Child services did get involved but told my friend only option is court and fight. She went on her 1st meeting today and just to start the procedures will cost minimum 2000$ there is a deposit to put down. She lives paycheck to paycheck. Pays for everything and cares for everything cause Mr dosent help. Please help my friend with anything you can so she can get her kids back full time.

please understand why i can’t put the picture up just yet. Safety of her and kids
