Upcoming Divorce

I need everyone's guidance....not a lawyer in town will touch my divorce in the middle of the mess without money up front. He pays me too much alimony/support (LOL) to qualify for pro bono. I never receive calls back from Gulfcoast Legal, nor any of the other supposed legal help for low income or hardship cases. Lawyers are for the rich and they usually win.

My soon to be ex is trying to take my daughter from me and the 'marital home' we've shared since 1996 - been together sice 1986. Of course, he's found himself a new younger model, as normal, and has moved on and thrilled with his new life. In fact, he is leaving on vacation in the morning for one week, but hasn't taken my daughter anywhere.

I tried to get on the radio, tv, newspaper to let people know what they could be in for when they leave a marriage that has been mentally abusive for years and finally get the guts to leave. NO ONE CARES. NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON. I HAVE NO FAMILY NOR FRIEND DOWN HERE YET HE HAS TONS. I LOSE BEFORE I EVEN START AS MY OWN PRO SE LAWYER.

I feel like running away from it all, but what kind of mom leaves their daughter with a father she can't stand? What kind of life is this anyway? A lonely, useless one for me. I don't care about me though - only for her happiness somehow. She will be starting 10th grade so if I can emotionally hang in there til she's in college, but I know me, I still won't want to leave.

I so wish for him to never return home and for me to go back to the marital home when he is gone. SURPRISE.
