Thank you for taking the time to read this. It is sincerely appreciated!
We are raising donations solely for the legal defense of Annie and her young son Henry, who have had their Legal Rights and Human Rights violated in the Family Court System. This is taking place in Ottawa County, Michigan.

Annie is currently facing a court battle with her ex-husband and father of their son. Since they divorced when Henry was just a toddler, her ex-husband has repeatedly taken her to court seemingly just to be spiteful, most likely because she took a stand against his abuse. 
He has the financial resources to pay large attorney fees and over the years he has found many ways to drag her back to court in an attempt to break her down.   
We want to bring light to the damage this causes children & families, and hope to bring about a change so that other children don’t have to suffer. It’s unbelievable the damage one angry, wealthy parent can do to their own child via the family court system, especially when the angry parent's resources FAR outweigh the other parent's resources.

I feel strongly that if we can raise enough money through this campaign to defend Annie and Henry we can stop this abuse of the legal system once and for all.

Making matters more difficult, Annie has had the chronic autoimmune disease Rheumatoid Arthritis for almost seven years now. This disease has progressed making it impossible to do her job as a Registered Nurse in surgery. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a debilitating disease that causes severe joint pain and damage. It can even damage organs. It is exacerbated by stress and causes major fatigue among many other problems.

All these things have taken a toll on both Annie and Henry. Right now she is feeling crushed, defeated and attacked from every direction. She just wants to be a mom! To have a chance to raise her son without the constant stress of court battles which are draining financially & emotionally. In order to do so she needs to have an excellent attorney on her side.

THIS IS WHERE WE CAN HELP! 
There are currently two court dates in the Family Court System (FOC) in Ottawa County, Michigan set to be heard on November 25, 2020 and February 18, 2021.

In October of 2020, a Judgment in the amount of $5856 was entered against Annie, based solely on her ex-husband’s attorney's evidence which was provided to the court without Annie or her attorney being aware. The $5856 represents the amount of daycare paid to Annie over the course of two years. Because she did have daycare costs, she is legally entitled to the daycare support. However the Judgement credits the $5856 directly back to her ex-husband. 
THIS WAS DONE WITHOUT A HEARING AND WITHOUT NOTICE.  This is a VIOLATION of her legal Rights. And also of Henry’s basic human right, to be cared for by both parents. Who have a legal & moral obligation to care for their children but it seems like this fact is often overlooked in the Family Court system. 
The February, 18th hearing is for an Objection to this order.

The November 25th hearing is to modify child support. Her ex husband has been making $274,000 a year. However for the last two years support has not been commensurate to his income. It has been based on him making $170,000 & her making $50,000 (but she's no longer able to work). Resulting in a major underpayment of child support. Just like many other single parents she relies in part, on child support to raise her son.     

In addition to the two current hearings, there is reason to believe that there will be another Court Hearing at some point, in which her ex will attempt to get more custody of Henry. He currently visits his father 6 days per month which began when Henry was about 11 years old. Prior to that, his father chose to rarely see him. When he does see his father, it is often a very stressful and scary time for Henry. He is 13 years old now and barely knows his father and what he does know, is not good. He wants to remain in his peaceful, loving home with his mother.

Annie has found an attorney & paid the Retainer Fee to hire the attorney however it is already depleted. Her ex-husband's attorney has played games and used tactics to dwindle away the retainer before even setting foot in court. She hasn't even gone to court yet and has already paid out $3400! These attorney fees plus the judgement for $5856 that's already in place against Annie, will create a massive burden.

I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to read this and for your prayerful consideration of donating to help with Annie's legal fees. ALL children of every single background deserve to have their legal and human rights protected. Thank you for reading!
