I'm getting stressed paying lawyer my son needs money for his care. Dad makes good money but keeps son with allergies in bad conditions. Spanks him although he is very mannerable and gets good grades. I am primary and take most of care cost, he pays under 10%. My son does not want to live with Dad, too harsh and we're suffering financially paying lawyer and going to court for over a year. Son is exposed to things that affect his health but I have spent thousands to keep environment safe as possible. He lives in old home, had cockroach infestation, squirrels get into home but just taped. Water damage and wiring problems. Same carpet, drapes, mattresses for over decades. Rides on motorcycle with no helmet on Dad. He has very good income but doesn't make environment safe for a kid with severe allergies so ER visits for me when kid comes home. Slapped in face and physically punished for grades but kid makes AB honor roll and test very well always. He does not want to stay with Dad but I'm having a hard time affording my lawyer. No drugs, great Mom with clean background, driving record and my kid comes first.
