Client seeks assistance with a custody matter involving her 4-year-old daughter. Opposing party (OP)/father, who has a history of abuse against client, modified the custody order without client’s input at a master’s hearing in September 2018. Client did not receive notice of that hearing because she was living in a domestic violence shelter at the time. Client petitioned for reconsideration, and the parties then agreed to a temporary order giving client custody during the week and OP overnight custody every other weekend, with one weekday evening on alternate weeks. They also agreed to attend co-parenting counseling. Client was delayed in scheduling counseling, but has since done so. However, OP filed a petition for contempt in the meantime. Client wants sole legal custody and to maintain the physical custody schedule listed in the temporary order. A volunteer is needed to represent client at the upcoming custody and contempt hearing on July 8, 2019 at 9:00 am, before Judge Diane Thompson. Client understands that representation may be limited to the upcoming court date and has agreed to sign a pro se entry of appearance at the end of the scheduled hearing.
