Case #22-0048215

Disabled client seeks representation for a custody hearing scheduled for September 29, 2022 at 9:00 am before Judge Wahl, regarding her 3-year-old daughter. Opposing party is the child’s father. A May 2022 temporary order granted Client partial physical custody and Father primary physical custody; the parties share legal custody. In October 2020, Client filed for sole legal and physical custody because she felt she and the child were unsafe with Father. Father abandoned Client and Child to live in rental property he owns in New Jersey. When visiting, Client alleges she was verbally harassed by Father and his tenants. Client also alleges that Father has made custody exchanges difficult, often by not showing up with child at the agreed upon time. Client also alleges Father has a history of alcohol and substance abuse. A volunteer is needed to represent client at her upcoming custody hearing.
