Fighting for my children.

My name is Alex. I'm a 33 year old single father. I have 3 children. 2 daughters and a son. They are my entire world. After my divorce I swore I would never love again and that all I would ever need is the love of my children. 4 years later that is still true. 
Although we were divorced my ex wife and I lived in the same home so that we could successfully coparent our children and we did a great job of it. Atleast for a little while. I had made the decision to live a sober life back in 2015 and I never looked back. I enjoyed being sober for the sake of my children and myself. However my ex wife did not decide to be sober and that lead to an unexpected and unfortunate incident that lead to me being unable to return to the home I was living in with my kids. The last time I saw them was September, 1, 2020 
My ex wife has done everything in her power to keep my kids from me and has continued to heavily drink and when she is drunk she is very violent. I've tried every day to reach out to my children but she will not allow me to make contact. We have had a parenting plan in place and she has not followed it. I fear for the safety of my children because I am no longer there to protect them from her drunken fits of rage. The police will not help as it is a civil matter and the courts demand that I lawyer up but I cant afford the amount they charge. I've looked into every law office within a 50 mile radius of where I live. I dont make a lot of money and I'm struggling financially. 
I have sold everything of value that I own just to save up for court. It breaks my heart that I have been broken down to the point of having to ask complete strangers for help. I swore that I would never allow myself to be in this sort of situation as I have always guarded my pride. But my life has been so dark without my children and I would do anything to save them from the current situation that they are in. I would use this money to find a good lawyer, I would pay my bills up a few months in advance, I would take a leave of absence from my job, and I would devote my entire life to fighting for my children. As a father nothing hurts more than knowing that your children are hurting without you. It kills my spirit. Waking up without the sound of their sweet little voices brings tears to my eyes as soon as I open them. The only thing I have ever been great at is being a dad. I swore I'd always protect them and I intend to keep that promise. So I'm setting aside my pride and having a little faith that the kindness of strangers will get me through the darkest chapter of my life.
