Title: Prayers for my sister
Post by: a.b. on August 11, 2003, 06:25:48 PM
Hello Prayer warriors, I have a request.  My sister's ex-husband is threatening to take her 2yr old daughter away.  He is a known felon, who smokes and grows pot; he is on parole and harasses my sister all the time. He doesn't even spend time with the child now!  He leaves the child with his girlfriend, who often leaves the kid with her parents!  Most of the charges against my sister are false.  She did make a mistake that may be used against her but she has recently committed her life to Jesus and I am asking God to have mercy on her and her daughter.  She has no money to retain a lawyer and the public assistance in Vermont will not represent the defendant, only the plaintiff; that is their state policy.  The lawyer will cost $1,000 plus $125/hr.  My husband & I will send some money to help and I am hoping that others will help her too.  Our family is trying to keep this little girl in our reach so that we can teach her about Jesus.  Thanx for your prayers and any information that may help our cause.

Since he isn't a Christian, has she thought of taking him to court for slander and defamation of character? She would have to be able to prove he's been lying, but if he has to pay for both his lawyer and hers, maybe he'll back down. Just and idea. Not only that, but if he's a known felon, I don't think he would have a leg to stand on, legally.

Good point Whitehorse!  Look into that.

My prayers are with your sister, and her child.

Thank you so much for your input and don't stop praying.!!
We lost the first battle, but we are not giving up.  Some things have been said that sis has done that looks unfavorable
but we trust in the mercy of the Lord.  She is a highly emotional lady and it has gotten her in some trouble.  So she is now willing to go to counseling to settle some matters of the heart and she continues to fight the ex for sole custody.
Thanx again for your prayers.

Love in Christ,
