Case #24-0053834

Father requests representation for a custody hearing scheduled for June 6, 2024, at 8:30 am before Judge Rajinderpal Sandher regarding his 9-year-old daughter. Opposing party is the child’s mother. A March 2024 temporary custody order granted the parties share physical custody and legal custody. The child has lived primarily with Client in New Jersey since birth. Mother filed to modify custody in August 2023, following an incident during a visit with Mother. Client alleges Mother’s partner punched the child in the face in front of Mother. Client contacted both New Jersey CYS and Philadelphia DHS but the investigations concluded without a finding of abuse. Client also alleges that Mother has told the child that she wants full custody and to “move far away.” Client states Mother seldom exercises her shared physical custody of the child, and that when she does, she and her partner use drugs and alcohol in front of the child. Client’s goal is to obtain primary physical custody and sole legal custody of the child. A volunteer is needed to represent Client at the upcoming hearing.
