I have a friend that is a mother of three. She is primarily a stay at home with an occasional job in the evening. Her husband, who is a failing recovering alcoholic, has threatened to leave and take the children from her. He makes all the money, for what little income he has, in the household and she doesn't have any resources to pull from. She is deathly afraid, just because she has no money, she will lose her children.

Can anyone offer some suggestions as to what she may do, where she may be able to turn to, to keep this man from taking her kids away.

Thank you in advance for any advice you may have.
