Case #22-0048414

Client seeks representation for her custody hearing on October 3, 2022 at 9:00 AM before Judge Elizabeth Jackson, involving her three sons. Opposing party is the children’s father, who has a history of physical and domestic abuse against Client. Client filed for primary physical and shared legal custody of the children in July 2021. An interim order issued in September 2021 gave 50/50 shared physical and legal custody to both parents. Client alleges the children frequently miss school under Father’s care, that he failed to give them medicine for lead poisoning and ringworm, and that he does not contribute to food, clothing, and extracurricular expenses for the children. Client also believes the paternal grandmother is doing drugs around the children. A volunteer is needed to represent Client at her hearing.
