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

Case #22-0047567

Client seeks representation at custody hearing on August 9, 2022 at 2:00 pm before Hearing Officer Marthe Mbuy, regarding her 10-year-old son. Opposing party is Child’s father. A 2016 custody order granted Client primary physical and legal custody, and granted Father partial custody on alternating weekends. Client says that Father took Child out of school in September 2021. Client has not seen Child in person since then. Client has spoken with him twice on the phone and Child says that he wants to come home. Father filed a petition to modify custody in March 2022, requesting sole custody of Child. Client alleges that Father was physically abusive towards her, that he has a history of cocaine abuse, and a criminal record. A volunteer is needed to represent client at her upcoming hearing.
