Client/Mother seeks representation with a custody matter. Client has primary physical and shared legal custody. The OP/Father has the child every other weekend and the month of July in the summer. Client missed the court date when that order was issued because she was attending her fiancé’s funeral out of state. In November 2013, client reported to the police that the OP had assaulted the child with a metal belt buckle, causing bruising to his face. There was a DHS investigation and it was determined the present custody order would remain in place; however the child refuses to spend time with OP. Client is seeking sole physical custody of the child. There is a custody hearing on December 18, 2014 at 9:00a.m. before Judge Peter Rodgers.
