Case Type Domestic Violence Skills Developed Client Interviewing/Courtroom Experience/Negotiation

Case #22-0047810

Client seeks representation for his upcoming Protection from Abuse (PFA) hearing on September 29, 2022 at 9:00 AM in Family Court. The opposing party is Client’s partner, whom Client alleges has been physically abusive towards both him and their 11-year-old Daughter. Client filed the PFA petition following an incident in which Partner attacked Client with a screwdriver, resulting in his hospitalization for several days. Client was granted a temporary order on March 7, 2022. There was a criminal case against Partner regarding the same incident. Client also filed a PFA petition on behalf of his Daughter; she was granted a temporary order on March 16, 2022. A volunteer is needed to represent Client for his PFA hearing. It should be noted that Client has a related custody hearing on July 25, 2022. While it would be ideal for a volunteer to assist Client with both cases, it is not required.
