Case #24-0054397

Custody – 24-0054397 (SB)

Mother needs counsel for a custody hearing scheduled for June 17, 2024, at 9:00 am before Judge Leanne Litwin, regarding her two minor children. The opposing party is the children’s father. Father filed to modify custody in November 2023. Client alleges that Father filed for custody in retaliation for being ordered to pay child support. A July 2023 custody order granted Client primary physical custody and granted Father partial physical custody; the parties share legal custody. Client also alleges that Father in unfit to care for the children because he has never cared for them before. There is an open and ongoing DHS investigation into a reported sexual incident between Client’s brother and her daughter. Client’s goal is to retain primary physical custody and shared legal custody of the children. A volunteer is needed to represent Client at the upcoming hearing.
