When I split with my sons father I didn’t ask for any support. I’ve always been too stubborn to ask for help. I suppose I also don’t enjoy stirring the pot. That being said, after accepting a job in Red Deer my ex took me to court for full custody of our son. I was able to maintain shared custody, I’ve never asked for more or less even though I’ve always been the parent who took care of everything my son needed. It went (fairly) well considering the pandemic however after stressing about having a job for the upcoming school year I was once again served custody papers for the new year. I don’t have the expendable income his father does. I don’t have the collateral. I never took money for our house or asked for support payments. But, I’ve come to learn that lawyers are expensive and while I want to fight until my last breathe for my little man, it may come down to giving up my dream job and career stability to move back to Edmonton so I can keep my son. I’m swallowing my pride and asking for help. I am asking for help to pay my legal fees. Nothing more. I love my son more than my next breath and will fight yet the anxiety of going into debt is a very scary prospect when I can see job security so close at hand. Please help me pay for the legal fees it will take to convince my sons father that my baby should stay with his mama as much as possible! If you’ve questions please feel free to ask.
