As many of you know, I am in the middle of a custody case regarding my son, Hendrix. In February of this year, a series of events took place, causing my baby to undergo massive trauma and stress, which could have resulted in possible self harm or suicide. This event was not my doing. Shortly after, I was served with custody papers from his father. Being served with custody papers has been heart-wrenching and has caused a battle like no other. It has resulted in a trial come this December. As a single, hard-working mother who no longer receives child support, money has been tight.
I can no longer retain my current attorney as I have already spent upwards of $20,000 to get to this point. I have been seeking a new lawyer that offers a payment plan. This type of lawyer is hard to find in Fort Bend County. I have struggled with worry, anxiety and tears and realize that "money" will determine whether I can keep custody of my child. I have found a new attorney, but to represent me, he is asking for $7500.00. My prior attorney wanted $15,000.00 more on top of what I already had spent.
I struggled with doing this, but I am desperate. I would appreciate anything you could contribute to this matter. I will do anything in my power to keep my child safe.
We appreciate your time and consideration for our little family. May God bless you always.
Whitney and Hendrix
