Case #22-0048425

Client seeks representation at a custody hearing on September 8, 2022, at 1:00 pm before Judge Litwin, regarding her 9-year-old son. Opposing party is the child’s father. A September 2014 order granted Client sole physical and legal custody of the child and Father’s supervised visitation was suspended. In February 2022, Father filed a petition to modify. Client is concerned that Father is unfit due to his history of alcohol and substance abuse, and an extensive criminal history, including convictions for violent crimes. Client is also concerned about the child visiting Father because he allegedly lives in an unsafe area of the city. Client’s goal is to retain sole physical and sole legal custody. A volunteer is needed to represent client at the upcoming hearing.
