MUM FIGHTS FOR HER SON.

Byline: PAUL BYRNE

A MOTHER faces a transatlantic love-tug battle after her ex-lover died and left their son in the care of his girlfriend.

Allison Williams, 40, fears she will lose seven-year-old Daniel following the death of his American father, Kevin, in California.

They shared custody of the boy when their relationship broke up. The couple had met in the States but Daniel remained there after Allison was deported to the UK for working without a visa.

When Kevin died from leukaemia, Allison hoped to be given full custody of Daniel.

But lawyers have told her she must raise more than pounds 3,000 just to start legal proceedings.

Allison, from York, said: "I have an attorney who will take on the case, but he will want his fee. I feel so helpless."

Kevin's niece, Shannon Dittebrand, said: "His girlfriend has indicated she will fight for custody."
