The process of going through a divorce can be utterly devastating. Having friends and loved ones there to support you can make a world of difference, but so can having the right attorney. This was certainly the case for a mom who shared her story on Twitter. Here, she gave insight into what led to her marriage ending.
Sadly, her husband also became her abuser. Although she was able to leave him in October 2021, her choice to leave clearly angered him. He became determined to leave her with as little as possible.
“Leaving him was hard but legally leaving him was even more difficult,” she shared. “He wanted everything, down to my cellphone charger.”
Though this experience has been incredibly difficult, she thanks her caring attorney for getting her through everything, acknowledging that, without her, the divorce process would have been “too triggering” for her to deal with.
Still, nothing could have prepared this struggling mother for what would happen when she texted her attorney about the final invoice she owed her. After the attorney confirmed that she owed $3,404.93, all she asked for was $150.
“It’s the holidays,” the attorney went on to text. “Save your money for the kids for Christmas, not legal bills.”
Mom, who was brought to tears, was absolutely blown away by the kindness she was shown. To show her gratitude, she insisted that she’d be paying her attorney more as she was able. Still, the attorney doubled down on her offer.
Mom goes on to share that she is in school for criminal justice with the goal of becoming a lawyer herself. This experience with her attorney has only further inspired her to make her dream come true.
“I plan on being a lawyer and do things exactly like this,” Mom said.
Although she says her abuser still makes negative videos about her on social media, Mom is still happy to share that she is “in love with the life I have created and found in these past years.”
“Thank you everyone for all the love,” she wrote once her tweets blew up. “… Knowing that other people can see the truth about who he is without even hearing half of my story is refreshing. What’s done is done and I’ve been healing.”
