Hi, my name is Kaleb. I’m a queer, single dad of a wonderful 5-year-old. I've started this gofundme in hopes that by reaching out to my community for the support I need, I will be able to finalize my divorce and begin to create a better and more stable home for me and my kiddo.
My son's mom and I separated a year ago and started the divorce process this past spring. I work an hourly job that, in the best of times, leaves little left over each month. My ex does not have the same financial struggles. Getting a divorce is lengthy, expensive and continues to get drawn out. I work full-time and make just under what is considered a “living wage." After bills, childcare, and the legal fees for this divorce, I’m left with next to nothing for me and my kiddo. And, honestly, that feeling sucks. I only want the best for him and don't have the means to achieve that- as one would expect, divorce is too expensive for poor people.
I am reaching out because I need help. I don't have the resources to move forward, and if nothing changes, I don’t know what that means for us (I’m trying not to think about it too much).
I’d greatly appreciate any help you can afford to give. This is not a situation I ever thought I’d be in, but I’m not too proud to ask for support when I need it.
Thank you so much.
