Case Type Custody Skills Developed Client Interviewing/Courtroom Experience/Negotiation

Case #20-0045117

Client has an upcoming custody hearing regarding her eight-year-old daughter. This case was scheduled for April 16, 2020, at 9:00 am, but will be rescheduled due to court closures. The opposing party is the child’s father. The current custody order gives client primary physical custody, and the parties share legal custody. The father takes care of the child every Wednesday-Thursday, and every other weekend. Client filed for modification of this order in 2017 after the child’s father refused to give client his new address and instructed child to lie to client about where they were staying. The father then filed a counterclaim requesting 50/50 custody. Client wishes to change the current custody order so father can only have the child every other weekend and not Wednesday-Thursday, so it doesn’t disrupt the child’s week. Client seeks representation for her upcoming hearing.
