I have recently seperated from my abusive husband & I'm in the process of a custody battle. I have two Sons, my oldest is 4 & my youngest will be 2 next month. I haven't seen them since Christmas. My ex isn't sending me pictures or anything. Not one day doesn't go by that I don't break down crying & begin missing them. I have gone without eating, not sleeping, etc because I just can't wrap my mind around not being with them. The worst part is my Sons have witnessed a lot of the abuse. I had also had an ectopic pregnancy just days before Christmas, I had to have emergency surgery, so I was physically down for almost 2 weeks. I took out an order of protection, but he hasn't been served yet. I have spoke to many lawyers & talk with my advicate for the order of protection almost daily. We have gathered so many pictures of physical abuse as well as many beyond many Facebook messages & texts of him admitting to most of the abuse, him lying to police, also of him verbally abusing me. I had been a stay at home mom for almost 7 years, so i didn't work outside the home. I'm currently staying with friends & family, theres been a few times I have slept in my car. I have been filling out job applications & just got enrolled with an online course for business management...these classes begin Feb 15th. Since healing from surgery I have been filling out applications, started school enrollment process, & doing all sorts of research for my situation...constantly. In order for me to obtain custody of my two boys I will have to have a lawyer & a 2 bedroom home & there room must be furnished. I'm also at risk of loosing my car, due to a title loan we took out together and he's no longer paying. My credit score has dropped drastically since he's no longer paying any bills in my name, so I was unable to obtain a credit card to pay for a lawyer. My phone will be next. I have nothing left with me to sell. What I do have is at our house that we both own, but my advisor recommended avoiding that option right now. He has already started selling things..big things, but unfortunately until I get divorce filed there's nothing I can do about it now. I'm in desperate need of being with my boys!! I need a lawyer, a house/apt (furniture, house hold items, etc), & if possible help to not loose my only form of transportation.
Update Han 26th: I have a job interview this week. :)
