She was in the hospital for 104 days and was discharged on January 1, 2022. The child’s maternal grandmother obtained temporary guardianship of the child during the hospitalization and it was extended to 2/5/2022 in order for the mother to fully recover and be fully able to care for the child. The court entered a default judgment in the custody case in November 2021, but then the custody case was stayed pending the conclusion of the guardianship case of the child. During the time this client was in a relationship with the opposing party, the opposing party was emotionally and physically abusive to her. He used isolation, intimidation, coercion, and threats to control her. Now, the child lives with the client on weekdays and spends every other week with his dad. The client would like sole legal and primary custody of her son with supervised visitations every other weekend. and she is seeking a pro bono attorney to assist her in this matter. Next Hearing(s): No hearing scheduled at this time.
