Case #24-0062037

Mother needs counsel for a custody hearing scheduled for August 21, 2024, at 11:15 am before Custody Hearing Officer Brittany Demeo, regarding her 9-year-old daughter. The opposing party is maternal grandmother (MGM). Client was pregnant at time of her incarceration in May 2014; giving birth in December 2014. In December 2016, Client agreed to terminate her parental rights, based on the belief, as told by MGM, that her rights needed to be terminated in order for MGM to take care of the child. The following year, MGM adopted the child and amended her birth certificate removing Client’s name and adding MGM’s name as parent. Client’s last in-person visit with the child was June 2023 and her last calls/texts were in March 2024. Client filed a complaint for primary physical custody in May 2024. Client’s goal is to obtain primary physical custody and sole legal custody. A volunteer is needed to represent Client at the upcoming hearing.
