Case #21-0047382

An elderly client, seeks representation for a custody modification hearing on January 31, 2023 at 9:00 before Judge Ourania Papademetriou. Client seeks sole legal and sole physical custody of his three-year-old daughter. An August 2022 order granted Maternal Grandparents primary physical custody, and sole legal custody as to the child’s education. Client was granted partial physical custody and shared legal custody in all matters except education. Client previously had sole legal and physical custody of the child. Maternal Grandparents filed for custody in May of 2022 and were granted partial physical custody pending the August 2022 hearing. Maternal Grandparents’ custody is to the exclusion of the child’s mother. Client is concerned for the well-being of the child due to prior instances of her not receiving proper care and attention while with Maternal Grandparents. Client believes he has been discriminated against based upon his age and financial status. A volunteer is needed to represent client at the January 31st hearing. Client understands that representation may be limited and has agreed to sign a pro se entry of appearance when the agreed upon representation ends.
