EVENT DATE Mar 22, 2016


My name is Ashley and I live in Nashville. I recently got out of an abusive marriage. I was with him for 6 years because I was too scared to leave. I finally grew a back bone after his last drunken outburst towards me, which was in front of about 1,000 people at a football game. He was mentally, physically and financially abusive to me. For the entire 6 years I was with him I worked 40 ours every week yet I NEVER had any of my paycheck. He had them direct deposited into his account and would not give me access to the bank account even after we were married. In order for him to sign the divorce papers he demanded I give him $3,500 or he wouldn't sign the papers. I took out a loan for the $3,500 but it has an interest rate of 29%. He also would not pay the credit card off that's in my name but the only purchase on it is for a privacy fence that's on the house that he kept, which was $1,600. He is an attorney and would not help me with these at all. I'm a receptionist and I only make $386 a week. It's very difficult to make ends meet as I'm currently having car issues and need to purchase new tires, back brakes, and rotors. The battery just died and I had to replace it as well. I really hate even making this page because I feel ashamed asking for help, but I'm desperate. I have tried to get another job to help me out I just haven't heard back from any of them yet. I'm really sorry about asking and making this page. I just need some help. I would be so grateful to be able to get these debts paid off so I will be able to make ends meet better. Thank you in advance for any help.
