  • Well unfortunately there isnt a whole lot she can do. If he's getting out then he's getting out. Hopefully this wasnt what she was using as her only source of income. I sure am sorry to hear about that though. But us women are tough, esspecially when we have to be.

  • Well to be honest, the only thing she can do right now is to provide a roof over her childrens head by either going back to work or getting on some type of assistance to make that possible. Secondly, if it isn't an eye opener by now it should be ~ meaning, she shouldn't rely solely on someone else's income to pay the rent where she lives with her kids. If it was court ordered or not, to have a back up plan would be the smart idea...
