We have a friend who is in this position whose marriage fell apart - both parties were at fault even though no one did anything majorly wrong. They have 2 young children and he is a good dad. She is quite bitter and not cooperating for the kids' sake, has moved away with the kids and he has moved to be closer to them but is still going through the courts to work out proper/increased access, parenting payments, etc. Due to the move he had to leave his job, has no income and is relatively homeless, yet he gets no assistance with the huge legal bills? Is this right?
I just feel sorry for the kids that they no longer get to see their dad very much at all.
