and money is too tight. my dad keeps coming to me (his daughter) saying he's not doing well, saying he doesn't know what to do, saying my mom hates him, he needs to talk to someone, etc...
and I don't know what to say! help what do I say to him.

Sit your parents down like they are little children and make them talk to each other. But set ground rules. No yelling not accusations. because no matter how well you know a person you will never know what they are thinking. Just put out how they feel.
Most divorces are due to lack of communication. tell the two children to act their age. if every conversation starts with an accusation or a condescending tone, Communication will never be had. They will just resort to information mining.(meaning just collecting information to throw in each others face).
You might have to mediate. And aggressively enforce the ground rules. And you might have to try to get the people to talk to you one on one to find out their issues and why they think their relationship is not worth trying to save. But be warned. It might get into some stuff no kid ever has to hear or know about their parents. It may scar you for life... But if you want to help your parents. the psychologist visits later may just be worth it! good luck lol.0
