CHILD CUSTODY MODIFICATION DENIED
A petitioner filed a Request for Order to modify child custody against our client in Solano County. After reviewing the petitioner’s declaration and conducting our own investigation into the matter, we concluded that it was not in the best interests of the child for child custody to be modified. We filed a responsive declaration and prepared our client for the scheduled hearing. At the hearing, the judge denied the petitioner’s Request for Order to modify child custody.
A domestic violence restraining order was filed against our client in San Francisco Unified Family Court. After our investigation, there was reason to believe that the restraining order was filed as leverage for financial gain in the course of a marriage dissolution. We filed a response to the domestic violence restraining order, negotiated a non-CLETS peaceful contact agreement with the petitioner, and the case was dismissed at the hearing.
