Kathy Toby-Vincent Coombs

I am raising money to help my amazing former nanny, Kathy, with her divorce.  Everyone who knows Kathy knows that she and her wonderful sons are part of our family.  She has an amazing attorney who is capping her fees but she needs $2000 to cover her second month of legal fees.   Her soon to be ex husband is suing her for full custody (even though she spends the vast majority of time with the boys), child support (even though he has a full time job and she is looking for work) and the house (he forged her signature and took her name off of the mortgage).  

His claims are baseless but he found a lawyer to represent him so she needs to fight him in Court.  The boys desperately want to stay with her.  

Kathy is so grateful for any help you can give.  We love her boys and want them to be in a safe and thriving environment with their mother.  Thank you!
