Legal help for Lauren

In May of 2018, after years of emotional abuse, my husband left our home saying he wanted a divorce because he was seeing someone else and it was "serious." In February of 2019, I gave birth to our second child. In June of 2019, we became legally divorced, but the terrorizing and mind games and manipulation continued as he used and continues to use our children as tools against me. In February, I was forced to give up my job and apartment, and move back home with my parents because after promising he would provide childcare on the nights I worked, he backed out on his agreement. Now, he's suing me for week to week visitation and wants domiciliary parent rights to avoid child support payments he's never made. I am seeking help with hiring a lawyer and paying court fees. Please help me stop the toxic cycle of abuse so my children don't have to grow up experiencing the same abuse I did. I am creating this campaign to help cover half the costs of requiring him to get a psych evaluation for what I believe to be borderline personality disorder and drug tests for a substance abuse problem so I can prove my children, Arthur and Amelia, need to have limited, chaperoned visitation with him. With this money, I can fight him in court and start to take back control of my life so I can be the best mother to my children and give them the love, security, and stability they need and deserve. Thank you so much for your consideration. Your words of encouragement and support are needed and appreciated just as much as any monetary donation you can make.
