"Hello everyone this is Carmen and this is a mass text message. I don't feel comfortable asking for help but I need it...Me and Zach has joint legal custody...Zach took me to court to able to claim Mariah on his taxes...It is court order that if I am not working full-time Zach is to claim her on his taxes. In 2013 I was working at the shop in Redford and claim Mariah on my taxes, Zach claimed her as well that year and ended up having to owe the IRS. He took me to court and stated I didn't work and that I never worked a day of my life, he took care for me and now still is... The judge believe him and order me to pay him back 4,500.00... Today I went to court with $180.00 and asked could I get on a monthly payment plan to pay him back. The judge told me No and that he gave me 60 days to come up with the money and I didn't... So next Wednesday 3-16-2016 if I do not have the 4,500.00 in full I will be going to jail. Going to jail will cause me to losing custody of Mariah and me having to have to fight to get her back once I get out... Also it will cause me to lose my job with DDOT... Note, if you're able to help I will pay you back in a timely manner. Please fwd to anyone that you feel would help me.Thanks" This was the heartbreaking text message that my cousin sent me today! Let's all please try and help her Come up with the money so she and her baby girl can stay together. ! Any help is greatly appreciated! God Bless you, even to those who want to give, but maybe cannot.
