 in response to 3plusme...   thank you for your responce, it has opend some new doors, i guess ive ben afraid of my ex so ive let him do this to me. the reason we divorced was because he was abusive to me and my oldest daughter. There is nothing more to this , just my ex being an asshole, and keeping the kids away is his way of making me pay for leaving him! I know in my heart that i have never done anything to lose custody of my kids.. ive never been to court and a judge say i lose my kids... I have papers that say i get my kids every other week and we take turns on holidays . Im gonna call leagle aid and see what they can offer. thanks again you was a big eye opner for me

 in response to zebra123...   Unless theres more to it. He's in violation of your parenting plan which puts him in violation of a court order. that is breaking the law. as long as you have your paperwork stating "joint" , theres not a damn thing he can do. except threaten you into believing he doesnt have to hand them over. call the police tell them what hes doing, show the officer your custody papers at that point an officer will then acompany you to the residence, making sure he hands your kids over . He cant hold your kids hostage if you have joint custody, unless theres some sort of stipulation that was entered upon judgment. which i seriously doubt. regardless of what or why hes deemed it unnecassary for you to see your kids, he's screwed. he has to hand them over REGARDLESS.... until a judge has stated other wise. that would mean he'd have to take you back to court to get the custody order changed. unless youve had issues since 2006 consisting of the state stepping in and removing your kids, deaming you unfitt, or a threat, etc....and even then a judge still has to sign off on stating you do not have your normal joint custody rights and thats the only time a custody order can be compromised. you can rob a bank....and still have all rights to your children. it sounds to me either your somehow in violation of a stipulation that was entered or hes just blow'n smoke to put the fear of god in you. even if you've moved out of state he still cant keep them from you. Anyways....as far as pro-bono attorneys i myself looked and looked only to find they prefere to help people involved in criminal cases or help moms that were in a domestic violence situation. but you may have better luck in your state. call legal aid ask them if they know of any "do it yourself" workshop programs put on by local attorneys and paralegals. I know they have that here, but you are your own attorney, your just provided assistance in wording and filling out the paperwork. its a start..... im sure they have that in your state...you just gotta dig. im sorry i cant help more. if your not leaving anything out....if i were you, id be on him like white on rice with the men in blue by my side demanding my children. then id take him back to court and slap him with contempt of a court order so damn fast he wouldnt know what hitt him. goodluck hun....

 in response to daughter1009...   if shes on medicare... start there, then go to her doc get a note stating SHE needs one he will write a "script" for one. most insurance companys will cover stuff like that. Social security if shes on it, might also.Rural development mite as well cause it may be considered a home upgrade for medical purposes. then try health and welfare. thats all i can think of. if anything else comes to mind ill let you know.

 in response to zebra123...   i can offer you nothing but, compassion. I was just in your boat and theres nothing out there if its a modification. From the sounds of it a custody agreement has allready been settled threw the courts....correct ? if by chance it hasnt, get in the yellow pages, under attorneys look for ur local "legal aid" also try the "lawyer referal and information services" you can find that num in the yellow pages also. Personally tears are what worked for me, with a female attorney suprisingly enough....goodluck sweetheart.

 in response to Denise42...   Im sure you've allready tried this but just incase you havent....your local rural development departmant (in the first part of phone book under government...i think) try your local S.I.C.A office and it wont hurt to call your local HUD department. All im pretty sure in government....maybe county,city, etc....but i know its at the beginning of book. Im 90% sure theres help out there for you with that, i got my mom help with that stuff when my grandmother moved in with us. Unfortunately.... iv learned with high hopes then dissapointment more than once that, just because its offered by my state doesnt mean it is in your, but heck thats a start. if nothing else, throw an add on craigs list asking people for help, Ive seen others do it. good luck. ill rack my brain some more for ya maybe something else will come to mind. goodluck

I am a 24 year old female that up until 9 months ago was living in West Palm Beach, FLA for 6 years and had my own place a job and a vehicle that i was making payments on time with. 9 Months later I am living in the basement of my mother and father-in-laws house. Which, to say the least, is a MAJOR change. I am trying to move back to FLA for permanent and I am financially short. I am trying to move back down there to be closer to my own family and have a better opportunity for potential employment then what I have here in the "sticks". What should I do? I need like 3000.00 to get down there from PA / Ohio border and thats for gas, a UHaul cargo trailer, food, deposit for apt, etc. Is there a website that helps people move? Or is there anyone who knows who can help. Please reply or email me thank you & god bless.

Hi. I am new to this site. I am a disabled person and have been for over 15 years. However, the past 2 years have proved to be worse and worse. I have to use a wheelchair often for more than just "going places", but the halls and doorways of the rooms, like my bedroom and bathroom are 30" and LESS! We have one huge room that used to be the garage. It could be converted into a bedroom and handicap accessible bathroom w/shower.
My husband can remodel, so there is no need for grants for labor, only materials! One might think it's easier to get grants and help when the cost would be so much less, but it's not! It is so frustrating!

My name is Anna and I am from Poland, I married a U.S. citizen two years ago, I am collage educated but I went to collage in Poland before coming here and I have found out that this does me no good in America and I would have to start over from basically day one with college which will cost a fortune that I do not have and I am so frustrated with it all.
I make minimum wage at my temp job and my husband makes fairly good money but even at that we barely are making it living check to check as they say,I never even heard of credit score until I move here the American dream as become just that a dream.
I have been interested in starting a online store with a product that I really believe in and I know that it will do well plus there is huge profits built in to this product, all of the research I have done on this product shows great potential and demand for it.
My problem is even though start up costs are fairly low about 8 to 10 thousand total, in my world it might as well be a million dollars, I have been looking for some type of loan or grant or even a investor that would not just take my ideals and cut me out of it, sorry but I do not have a lot of faith or trust seeing as every where I turn every one just wants money from me, trying to pray on the fact that I need help with my dream and hope of doing some thing to better myself and family.
You here that if you are a women or a immigrant to this country that you have a better chance at getting help, well it seems that is a big fairytale.
I am hoping that someone knows and can help me with finding the sources that I can use to make this happen.
P.S. please forgive my grammar English is after all a second language to me, Thank you.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Dennis. When I first found out about this site,"Aidpage" I was living in Michigan, going to college at Jackson Community College. I was bettering myself for my children and wife. What I didn't know was that my wife was cheating on me with another man in another city. Her home town, every time she told me that she was going to be with her mother for the weekend, she was with him. The way for her getting away and moving back to her hometown city was by calling the police and telling them that I had hit her, so they locked me up and I got out 7 days later, but that put me way behind in school, I was taking 16 cerdit hours. I had to drop out, lost my job at the college and lost my appartment.

The reason for this letter is to see if there is anyone out there that is willing to bless me by helping adlease get started back on my feet? I was so hurt by this that I moved to Hartford,Ct. I am in a Colnary arts program, but I am going through so much not being able to buy all the things I need to survive. Please, I know that some one out there has been through what I been through, and knows how I feel and how hard it is? Please,  I ask for help in Jesus Christ name! Thank you! dennisross94@yahoo.com
