Hey I'm David Bellow and I need help to protect and fight for my son Michael. We have been through hell and abuse but they havent been able to take my son from me yet! Attorneys are not cheap  but are needed for little Michael to have someone to fight to stop people who keep trying to take this little boy away from me, his father. I found an attorney willing to work with me for a good rate so funds will go to Attorney Jonathan Stovall.

Over the years, I have had to save little Michael from being alone and crying in cars in parking lots, to fighting to get me and my son out of physically abusive situations. Apparently when it is a man getting abused it is not taken seriously. After 2 years of battling for full custody, I offered a truce. Instead of me going to trial to get full custody, I offered 50/50 custody to move on and let Michael's life get settled. The final custody agreement was made. I was broke and bankrupt but I fought and won for my son.


Not a month after the signing of the custody agreement, My ex filed for custody modification and has been trying to keep fighting me to take away my son. I am an outstanding father who goes above and beyond raising my son. My son is very happy with me and he screams and cries anytime I am not there or have to leave. It is very traumatizing for him and he needs some stability in his life and he needs a father. I sold my house and went bankrupt fighting for my son and now I need to raise money to keep fighting for him.

Most recently, a temporary protective order was issued against the boyfriend of my son's mother due to my son claiming that the man did some bad things to him. When the police started investigation, my son's mother took my son and kept him from me so that the police could not investigate. I had to go to court and get my son back.

Please if you can give anything do so and I can pay for the attorney representation needed for me to fight for and protect my son.

I feel for you. My ex is trying to do the same to me. He is trying to take my beautiful daughter away from me. He accused my boyfriend of doing bad things as well and the investigation proved nothing happened. My boyfriend was cleared and my ex is still pushing to take my child from me. He told me when I filed for divorce he would do anything and say anything he had to to take her from me. Which accusing my boyfriend of what he did proved he meant it. I have mediation on the 6th to hopefully finalize my divorce and the custody. That little girl misses me when she is with him. She was a month and a half late starting kindergarten and then missed six days after she started while she was with her dad. She started five weeks late for first grade and then another two days after she finally started and we had to go to court for truancy because of her father. She only missed two days while she was in my care last year and hasn't missed a day in my care this year. It shows who is being the responsible one but he is still trying to fight me for her and wants to home school her on a semi truck. It just doesn't work. Now because she's so far behind from missing so much last year and this year she might not make it to second grade in the fall. I just pray my fight will be over soon. I pray you get to stay in that baby's life. I've always said a child needs both parents. As much as I dislike my ex my daughter needs her daddy too. That's something my ex doesn't understand is a child needs both parents, especially the parent who is the same gender as them. When they get old they're gonna need that parents guidance with the bodily changes they will go thru. My prayers are with you. If I wasn't fighting my own battle I would give you as much as I could. You just continue fighting for that baby!

I sat in court just this past week and watched in horror as her attorney pushed to have this little boy taken completely away from his daddy (and by default, the rest of his family, including me, his Aunt). Thankfully, the court saw absolutely no reason to allow that but that doesn't stop her attorney from continuing to push to keep David Bellow from his son. I have also sat and watched in heartbreak many times as this little boy has unconsolably cried for his daddy for hours until he became sick. No child should be #FatherlessByForce! And no father should have to go through all of this just to be a dad to his own son. We need to #StopTheWarOnDads! Even if you cannot give, please, at the very least, call your state reps (http://www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/Home.aspx) and tell them to support equal parenting bill 85(R) HB 453! Because ONLY FOUR DAYS A MONTH is not enough for a child to be with his daddy OR mommy! It is #TimeToPutKidsFirst! DON'T WAIT till it happens to someone you love! Also, check out The Texas Fathers' Rights Movement to read more the heart wrenching stories of the thousands of other fathers fighting just to be in their children's lives. We must #StopParentalAlienationNow! Fathers are literally killing themselves because their children were taken from them and they had no hope of being with them again (because of falseness allegations, no money, biased courts, etc). Imagine losing your children while they are still alive! The grief is unbearable for some! https://l.facebook.com/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fstory%2F2002%2F01%2F29%2Fare-fathers-rights-factor-in-male-suicide%2F&e=ATMG-6q5xYeGCb71gJZ0ONJKuaM-iY4nC9GQyNhTz0sSgqWmeE-mvZpCQulXNEU79efNl_mhCVjlT_DihHSJ3F0SISIkWa1A1fHEfD1XPfAJLEBdtq5_pfZ2XYZRwykx

I'm praying for truth to reign and the darkness of abuse to be exposed. May justice reign, in the mighty name of Jesus!
