Case #22-0048181

Client seeks representation for a Protection from Abuse (PFA) hearing on September 19, 2022 at 9:00 am before Judge Viktoria Kristiansson. Opposing party is Child’s mother. In May 2022, Client filed for a PFA on behalf of his autistic 9-year-old daughter following an incident in which Mother hit Child repeatedly on the head. Daughter was granted a temporary PFA in early June. Client also contacted DHS; they have yet to investigate Mother’s house. Client believes Mother is angry about having to pay child support and is taking it out on Daughter. He alleges that she has been aggressive in the past. Mother violated temporary PFA on July 18, 2022. A volunteer is to represent Client’s daughter at the hearing.
