Case #22-0048189

Client seeks representation for a custody hearing on August 22, 2022 at 9:00 am in front of Judge Wahl, regarding her 9-year-old daughter. Opposing party is the child’s father. An August 2018 order, granted Client and Father shared physical and legal custody. Client filed a Petition to Modify in January 2022 because Daughter said her step-mother made her eat food out of a trash can during her most recent visit with Father. Client also alleges that Daughter is not adequately fed while in Father’s care, is forced to complete physically difficult chores, and is blocked from speaking with Client when she is with Father. DHS has been involved because of the incident related to the child eating food out of the trash can. Client’s goal is to obtain sole physical and legal custody. A volunteer is needed to represent client at her upcoming hearing.
