Visitation Rights for Joseph

We are raising funds for our good friend and brother, Joseph Vu, who has not been able to see his two daughters, Ella (age 10) and Emma (age 8) since 2015.   Joseph has been facing a tough legal battle to see his kids again, and we've been asked by Joseph's lawyers to not go into any details of the case on this page.  

We know Joseph Vu to be an honorable man and father.  He joined the US Army Reserves right out of high school in 2003 and served his country up until 2015.  His faith in God has gotten him through this tough time.  And much like God is our Father, who shows love to his children, Joseph wants to be in the life of his daughters to show them love, teach them, guide them, and be there for them.  There is nothing in this world that is more important to him.  

We want to help make this a reality for Joseph.  And we need your help.  Since this unfortunate situation began, he has already paid approximately $40,000 of his own money in legal fees which continue to mount as he seeks to get visitation rights with his two daughters.  And the bills continue to come in as the case moves forward.  

He would be extremely grateful for any support you could lend to help him see daughters again.


*** It's important to note that Joseph has requested that not a penny of any of the funds raised be directed to his personal bank account.  Instead, all funds raised are being paid directly from the organizer of this page to the law firm handling Joseph's case to pay his legal fees as they come up.  The $50,000 amount we have set as the goal for this page is to cover his current legal fees and expected future legal fees.  ***
