Case Type Custody Skills Developed Counsel and Advice/Courtroom Experience/Negotiation

Case #20-0044937

Client needs representation for a custody matter before Custody Master Jacqueline Vergara concerning his teenage son. This custody master’s conference was initially scheduled for March 26, 2020 at 2 pm, but it will be rescheduled due to recent court closures. Client seeks sole legal and sole physical custody of his 13-year-old son. The child’s mother, who is the opposing party in this case, was awarded sole legal and sole physical custody in 2017 after client had taken his son on a planned vacation and mother reported him kidnapped. Client feels mother does not provide a positive environment due to her drug use, and he thinks his son is depressed. Client has had to travel frequently since 2017, but now that he is consistently at home in Philadelphia, he has filed a petition to modify the custody order. An attorney is needed to represent client at his custody master’s event. Client understands that representation may be limited to the next court date, and he is willing to sign a pro se entry of appearance at that time.
