I am a fully disabled veteran earning 10 percent disability from a service connected injury and receive SSDI.
After divorcing a medically documented abusive spouse, I had the children I cared for since birth taken from me for three weeks of every month. I see them just every other weekend and a day a week for four hours. My income is now reduced through child support and alimony payments to $660 a month. This amount does not cover my expenses to live, while my fully able bodied spouse is able to sit in welfare housing taking $1,280 per month and pays no bills.
She has repeatedly violated the payee status of being the children's payee for the S.S. they receive due to my disability.
I now require another back surgery due to abuse not reported by police while I had a PFA on my wife. This will be paid for at taxpayer expense while my former wife refuses to seek employment after quitting her job three days before a master's hearing for custody and now receives unemployment compensation.
The state of Pennsylvania has essentially made two parents reliant on taxpayer funding because I chose to divorce my abusive wife who refused to sleep in my bed for six years while I cared for our children and she ran up my debt using credit cards in my name only and must now declare bankruptcy.
I was honorably discharged and never abused my spouse, ever. The abuse I received from her is medically documented.
