Greetings to everyone who is going to read my message.I have a friend who is in Oak Harbor right now and is about to become homeless soon. She has two small kids who will have nowhere to go to and nothing to eat unless I will try to help her. I`m in a different state, so my hands are tight. She is in the middle of a divorce process with her husband who just got kicked out of the military for all the abusive and violent behavior. He is fighting over the custody for children not because he wants them(he cares less for them right now by telling his wife to get out of the house and take the kids with her), but because he wants to cause pain to his soon-to-become-ex-wife. He never let her work, never gave her enough money (her parents had to support her), never did anything that might be worth mentioning.He used all the tax return money for the best lawyer in town who won the battle of the first trial where she couldn`t get a restriction order. He intentionally bruised and scratched himself in a couple of places and showed up in court claiming his wife did it. He got himself a brand new car whereas his wife had to drive an old car that was braking all the time and even was the reason for a horrible accident where nobody died, but the kids were inside and covered by many pieces of shattered window glass. He showed no care, but blamed his wife for recless driving and beat her up upon arriving back from deployment. The reason for the accident was low tire pressure, he was the one who had done all the work on the cars and promised her that the car was safe. Even though this sounds embarrassing, I`m going to mention how exactly he used to abuse his wife in front of 2 little children - by sticking his fingers inside of her nostrils untill she strated bleeding, that left no signs or trace of abuse. His actions were premediated and thought through. Now he is trying to leave his wife with nothing, plus he wants to make her responsible for half of his debts that he used for the lawyer and his brand new car.She called the shelter, they have no room for her, she called some other instalations, they all turned her down.She really needs a good lawyer to be able to keep her children safe with her, because if they end up with him, they will be miserable and not going to be taken care of.If you think you can help somehow, doesn`t matter how, by advice, support, by just being there for her , by donating, by letting other people know about her situation, I`m sure she will have something to hold on to at the end of the day.Thank you very much just for reading this and tryng to undrerstand her situation.
