HELP Me Bring My 3 Baby Girls Back HOME to TEXAS!

We broke the $3k mark on our way to our $5k goal! Unfortunately, another sad truth about this situation has revealed itself. When this jury trial was filed I was hit with this realization. It doesn’t matter if I pay for it or if she pays it or if we both pay it, but poof, just like that, another $20,000 left our family to pay for legal fees. Another $20,000 over and above what has already been spent on legal fees just to bring the Girls back home where they belong and to be able to see their daddy. That’s $20,000 that won’t go to support our family, $20,000 that won’t go towards a family home, $20,000 that won’t go toward retirement, $20,000 that won’t be available for the Girls college education, for their cars, for their weddings and so on. In the end it will end up being a multi-generational penalty that will plague my family for this generation and the next. It’s a hell of a price to pay for a parent’s poor, misguided decision and the courts inability to recognize the reality of the situation and to follow the guidelines set in place by the County to protect children and families in this situation. Let's pray that at least 10 of the 12 Texan jurors at my trial will correct this injustice so we can put this hellish year behind us and work on healing our family and put some stability and normalicy back into those precious little girls lives...

Who this will help
I am the very proud Father of an 11 year old and two 8 year old Daughters. The funds are to go towards our attorney’s retainer deposit. Please HELP Me Bring My Three Baby Girls Back HOME to TEXAS!
Why I'm fundraising
Several months ago, out of the blue, my wife said she wanted a divorce. She took my three baby girls and took off more than 1,500 miles away to live with her sister. The way I read the Texas Family Court Rules is that unless there is mutual agreement or family violence the Children are to remain in Denton County or a County contiguous to Denton County. I don't know what map the court was looking at but Denton County or Counties contiguous to it are not 1,500 miles away!

When I see my Children at the end of April this will be only the 4th time I have seen them in an Entire Year! There has been as much as four months between visits with my children. No parent should ever have to guess how tall their children have gotten since they have last seen them - it’s just plain cruel.

*The only reason I have ever been given for the divorce, for losing my children, having my life destroyed and for my soul being crushed is the X doesn't like living in Texas. These young girls should not be forced togrow up without a Father. A judge should not consider a selfish request of any parent but should do what is best for the Children – Period!

The Only way I can get around the court’s ruling is to request a Jury Trial - a Jury of my fine Texan Peers. Granted, the law firm that I am hiring is on the expensive side of the spectrum but they are the best at what they do and the future of my family’s existence is literally at stake. The jury trial from start to finish is estimated to be about $30k. Right now I only (only) have to raise $10k for the retainer deposit and this will get me going. Time is of the essence because this whole process needs to be finished before school time in the summer. Please help as much as you can as soon as you can. I can never thank you enough for your consideration.

The impact of your support
Best Case: The Texas Jury grants me full custody of my Baby Girls, they move back into the only home they have ever known, back to the schools, teachers and friends that they know and back into their extracurricular activities. I will be back to the doting, loving daddy doing everything I can for them and shedding as much love on them as they can handle.

Worst Case: I get 50/50 custody with my x and the Children live with my x but the Jury requires that the Children move back to Texas, Denton County. This way, we can at least follow a normal custody schedule so I can be in my Children’s lives as much as possible, as much as the law provides.

Final Case. This Texas Jury, at minimum, will undo the unconscionable act of having my Family ripped apart and separated by 1,500 miles. These innocent children did nothing wrong - they didn't deserve to lose their daddy...
