While my sister and her daughter have a strong case, the court system outcome is often determined by who has the most money to put into it. I cannot give details because of the upcoming case, but I can say that it really is best for my niece to stay with Andrea. He is seeking full custody.
It often seems that whomever can hire the best attorney wins, and the best attorneys cost money. My family is helping as much as we can, but we can only do so much financially. He comes from a wealthy family with deep pockets. Attorney retainers where she lives are $5000 and final costs depend on how long the case takes. Some people end up owing over $25,000 to their attorneys.
Andrea is the best person to care for her daughter and they need to remain together. Imagine being in her shoes and how scary that would be. How can you help?
The biggest issue they face is a financial one. My sister is hiring the best attorney she can with the money she has available, but that is not much. Please donate to help cover the custody battle costs and work with the best attorney possible. Every dollar will go directly towards keeping mother and daughter together, exactly as it should be.
