Weʼre raising £3,000 to legal representation for my upcoming civil case to get shared custody of my beautiful baby girl Scarlett.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Me and the mother of my child have been in an on-off relationship for nearly three years, it has been a rocky rollercoaster as I am sure many of my friends and family reading this know, we both shared custody over Scarlett, our daughter. We broke up in January, and, with the help of social services, we both came to the agreement that we would each get to spend 4 days on, and 4 days off with our daughter. This schedule was based around my weekly work schedule.
This process had been working smoothly up until 1st April, when myself and the mother got into a disagreement and out of spite, will no longer let me see my daughter, and I now have to go to court to plead my case as to why I should be a part of my daughters life.
My problem is that the mother is currently not in employment, as she is looking after our daughter full-time right now. This means she is entitled to free legal representation at our upcoming civil case to determine who has custody over our daughter. As I have a full time job, I am not entitled to this and I am left to either self-represent myself in court, which puts me at an immediate disadvantage, or fork out thousands of pounds (which I do not have) for official legal representation.
The mother is going to court in hopes to gain full custody of our child and stop me from ever seeing my daughter again.
I am here asking for the smallest amount of donation to be done so I can afford real legal representation to help me have shared access to my daughter. By no means, am I looking to seek full custody of my child and take her away from the mother, I strongly believe we both should be apart of our daughters care and upbringing, as despite our differences in our relationship, we both are good parents and love and care for Scarlett very much.
To all my friends and family and all my loved ones over Facebook, I ask you kindly to share this for me so I can raise money for court hearings, receipts will be posted. I want to continue being a brilliant father and be apart of my daughters life forever.
I Thank everyone who takes the time to read, share and donate to this page to help me as a willing caring father be there for his baby girl.
No donation is too small and all very much appreciated.

About the fundraiser
London, United Kingdom
Me and the mother of my daughter had been in a relationship for 3 years and we have a beautiful 14 month old daughter together. We have now separated and despite being a constant in our daughters life she has stopped access knowing I have no means to contest custody in court.
