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

Case #22-0047851

Client seeks representation at a custody hearing on July 20, 2022, at 9:00 am before Judge Wahl, regarding her 13-year-old daughter and 7 year-old-son. Opposing party is the children’s father. Client and Father have filed several petitions for custody and contempt since 2009. Client most recently filed a petition for primary physical custody in August 2019. The case was administratively canceled and rescheduled a number of times due to COVID-19. Per a December 2020 interim order, Client retained primary physical custody and shared legal custody; Father retained partial physical custody. During 2021 Client alleges there were multiple incidents of abuse by Father toward the children. Client obtained a protection from abuse (PFA) order on their daughter’s behalf in February 2022; the PFA modified custody to disallow physical discipline of the children and require they attend individual therapy. Client’s goal is to obtain primary physical custody, with Father having the children every other weekend. A volunteer is needed to represent client at the upcoming hearing.
