Kam was a happy, well respected man, who was married to the love of his life. He has 2 lovrly children aged 12 and 14 and they lived in there own, cosy home. Kam worked 2 jobs in order to keep up with bills and pay off some debts. He worked a full time job in the day time (6am - 2pm) and a part time evening job from 6pm - 11pm.
This was very tiring and demanding but he managed to do this for 5 years to help maintain family finances. He was working 70 to 80 hours a week!
It meant that he did not have much spare time to spend with his wife and children, but it allowed them to have nice things in life as well as paying all necessary bills.
Kam' s wife was the woman of his dreams. They had been married for 16 years and had ups and downs but always found a way to get through things. In 2016, Kam's world was destroyed when his wife kicked him out because she was fed up with their financial situation. By being burdened with large debts and with Kam always being away from home whilst working. She had enough of this and wanted a divorce as she saw Kam as a failure.
Kam was working w jobs to maintain a decent home and lifestyle for his family but still his wife was not happy.
Kam even tried to win some large amounts of money by
gambling but this just made things worse. He only did this because he was desperate. Kam was totally devasted!. He had no where else to go. He had little money. All the money he earnt was going to his wife's account to pay all the bills.
This still needed paying and his wife wanted him to pay £200 for maintenance.
This meant that Kam could not afford to rent out a room so he decided to work day and evening, then sleep in his car.
This was awkward but it enabled him to still pay household bills for his wife and children and pay weekly maintenance.
Kam has done this for 2 years so that his ex wife and children can still have a decent life.
His life is so harsh but he keeps fighting. Now he nees to buy a new car which is his home. Please help
