Legal funding for father & daughter

My nephew loves his 8 year old daughter with his whole heart.  That is a true and heartfelt statement.  He loves taking her hiking and camping and teaching her about the outdoors. He loves building Legos, making tents out of chairs, flying kites, identifying snakes, doing arts and crafts, and watching her ice skate.

Unfortunately, he has been divorced for almost 6 years. For the past 3 or 4 years -- and especially since his ex-wife remarried -- getting to visit with his daughter has been a very difficult and contentious struggle. It seems he is met with opposition each time his monthly visit comes around. He recently relocated from Texas to where his daughter lives, to make it easier to see her, but each month seems to bring new trials and heartaches. Court battles are not easy, and a good lawyer to advocate for his rights as a father has become increasingly expensive. His parents have helped him relocate and have helped with court expenses the past few years as much as they could. He once appeared in court without an attorney due to lack of funds, and quickly came to regret it. Court rulings made that day have haunted him ever since. He has an outstanding attorney now, but good representation is expensive.

My nephew is a good father, an excellent role model, and a necessary part of his daughter's life.  Giving up on seeing his daughter and being actively involved in her life is NOT an option, so we have come to gofundme and are asking YOU for help!  We are a large, loving family and just want to enjoy this precious little girl God has blessed us with.

His and his parents' resources are exhausted!  He needs financial help to continue fighting for his visitation rights. Right now he is reduced to seeing her only one weekend a month and even that time is being threatened. My great-niece needs her father ... and my nephew needs his daughter. Please help us with any amount you can, great or small; through your generosity, my nephew will be able to keep his daughter in his life.  Please do not let lack of money keep this beautiful little girl away from her daddy.

Thank you, and may God bless you for prayerfully considering our plea for help.
