My name is David Moffett and I’m a single dad of three beautiful children. I’ve created this website to help raise money for legal fees. Currently, I am trying to divorce my wife of seven years. Throughout the past seven years I’ve been beaten, choked, bit, and abused by my wife. My kids have been slapped, called names, and told, “I hate you” by their mother. My wife has bi-polar of the severe kind. I have done everything in my power to get her the help she needs, however she has refused all my efforts every step of the way.
All I have ever wanted was a family that I never had, a family that was never broken. After facing a recent near death experience, perpetrated by the hands of my wife, I have come to the conclusion that the abuse needs to stop. I’ve reached out through legal services/financial aid only to be told, “I can’t help you” by every lawyer I’ve talked too. One lawyer was kind enough to inform me the reason for this. He informed me that through Legal Aid lawyers only get paid a maximum of $2,400.00 which almost bankrupted him when he helped someone with a similar case.
I was also informed that single mothers typically have an “upper edge” in divorce and custody hearings and that my wife will likely find it easy to find assistance pro-bono. I find this to be a terrible injustice to humanity and sexist as well. A person in need should be looked at as a person in need and not be judged by their sex. Men should have equal rights as women in custody/divorce hearings and it is my hope that this donation website will gain the necessary visibility in order to promote my fellow single dads around the world. Let’s raise awareness, donate to my cause, and start a new “Hope For Single Dad’s” across the world!
