Internet costs so I can search for a job

Post by Sangria » Fri Apr 24, 2015 10:07 am

I was served divorce papers and an attempt at sole custody by my soon to be ex-wife. I really have wanted this to be over a long time ago, and now that she has another child, and 2 incomes supporting her household, I fear that I am out of luck as far as processing what I need. I get by, but affording more than $200-$400 in a month of expenses that are not in my budget such as an attorney to help handle this case, I will be faced with appeal after appeal to get my case settled justly.
We have lived apart for an extended time. I gave my son the choice to stay with me for the school year or go back to his mom, as I was in the Army until June of 2013, and stationed over seas from July 2012 - December 2013. I was unable to collect him prior to the school year there for the 2013 session. I have my own rebuttal to the served papers, I need to have it reviewed prior to sending it, and deal with the 'emergency' custody hearing on August 1st. With no previous paperwork ever getting filed due to the New York statutes and difficulty in locating her for over a year. I had been sent into a downward spiral of financial instability. I am almost above water again, but stretched thin fixing all the garbage she left me with.
I can pay my auto loan, insurance, rent and utilities without problem. The small things that I need like internet for school enabling me to collect my post 9/11 GI Bill helps keep me out of a negative cycle. With this right now as I am trying to get the book balanced correctly again puts me in a precarious position. I can afford to fight back, probably costing me the last of my credit score, my car, and being detrimental to my ability to care for myself, or I can take the hit, and see my son at the 'discretion' of a money driven woman who has used everything from the battered spouse approach to subversion in those around me to get more out of me. My bringing up does not allow for striking another with just cause, and as I have had reason, I have not allowed myself to for the sake of my son.

Hello,
I am a new mother of the eight week old and I am assistance with help of paying bills for my internet connection with the cable company. I was on maternity leave through disability and because my doctor has written me out of work because they were some complications with the pregnancy and postpartum they are refusing paying for any benefits. I now have zero income, I'm in desperate need of help and assistance with payment of internet bills and other costs. I need to be online to look for a job, and was wondering if you could refer me to someone that could help. I appreciate you reading this email and with all the assistance thank you.

Well if you now have zero income, paying for internet should be the least of your problems. Go to a library or social service office to access the internet...and cancel yours. You should be worried about feeding your 8 week old. But find a list of free and low cost internet programs for going forward...but they will not help with any existing bills.
