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

Case #22-0048198

Client seeks representation for her contempt of custody hearing on August 16, 2022 at 1:00 PM before Judge Tiffany Palmer regarding her eight-year-old daughter. Opposing party is child’s Father. Father filed for partial physical and shared legal custody of Child in January 2022. An April 2022 interim order granted Father partial physical custody three weekends per month. Client and the maternal grandmother share legal custody. Father filed for contempt of custody in May 2022, because Client was withholding the child. Client filed exceptions to the interim order in May 2022, but they were denied and the interim order became permanent in June 2022. Client is amenable to granting Father partial physical custody, but she would like to take the process slowly, citing Father’s drug/alcohol use and a previous incident where Child was molested by another adult while in Father’s care. She is also concerned that Father will not tell her where he lives. A volunteer is needed to represent her at the hearing.
