Case #22-0048833

Client seeks representation for a custody hearing on December 5, 2022 before Hearing Officer Magras, regarding her 11-year-old son. Opposing party is the child’s father. A March 2021 final order by agreement granted Client and Father shared legal custody and shared physical custody. Father filed a petition to modify custody in August 2022. Client alleges that Father filed to modify custody because he would like to be granted primary physical custody to put the child in a better school district and enroll him in a different school. Client states that the child is thriving at his current school because he is receiving individualized attention in a small classroom. A volunteer is needed to represent client at the upcoming hearing.
