Let me preface this by saying, this goes against everything I am, and I'm having a hard time doing this. But I need some urgent help.
As some of you may know I am all by my lonesome, since mid-December, following a discovery that broke my heart, but I offered to forgive and move on but that wasn't accepted.
Now, after agreeing to an amicable split on the apartment we bought together (accepting that she put in more than me) , I am also being sued for monies that were spent during our time together and other funds that were given freely and without conditions.
Sadly I have had to retain a lawyer, and of course, that costs money.
It wasn't enough.
So know we're headed to court, and having not travelled to cover MotoGP (because I had a feeling that this was coming and as a freelancer it's always a struggle and so I needed to save $$$) I went to see my lawyer today later on this afternoon and so I need $5000 by Monday 5/20 for him to represent me, as the "opposing team" waited to the last minute and we were given a late in the day deadline.
He feels he can get this sorted. I have already $2000 on hand, but with outstanding invoices that I'm due that won't be paid for a few weeks I simply don't have the balance of $3000.
I'm not looking for a giveaway, I'm planning on reimbursing anyone who can help in my request as this is only a deposit to guarantee he'll be paid for the representation, and I'm happy to send along a thank you print/book in return as well. I will be moving to a new state and as such there'll also be an open door to dinner, pizza, whatever I can do to say thank you.
I just need it by this Monday May 20.
As I prefaced this message, this is horribly embarrassing.
