Is it legal to hold a charity style benefit to raise money to cover the legal costs of my child custody case?

I am in a legal battle with my ex-wife over the custody of our son. All signs are pointing to her losing, hover the legal costs have already exceeded $10k and we have not even gone two trial yet. I was thinking of a benefit among friends and family members to help defer my legal fees. Is this even possible?

    it is illegal to solicit money from the public without a state-issued solicitation license.
    And they only give those to properly-constituted nonprofit corporations.
    No, being broke does not make you a nonprofit.
    Violations can result in fines up to $2500 and two years in jail.

    No

    Because this isn’t a charity. You would be required to pay taxes on such money that exceeded any such normal gifts.

    You being broke isn’t a charity.

    No, legal fees are not considered charity. Charity is for relief of hunger, protection of the environment, and so on. If you held a benefit event, it would be considered income and you would have to pay tax on it like any other source of income.
