agreed to approve.
Grandmother is Awarded Temporary Custody
Represented the grandmother of a child whose mother relapsed after release
from rehab. When the child was found to be in a deprived state by the
juvenile court, an extensive plan was set up to ensure the mother's
sobriety and the child's safety while the child remained in mother's

further litigation, the child was placed in the temporary custody of client-grandmother
and more intensive safety plan was implemented for mother.
Successfully Defended Petition for Protective Order

and through text messages. Evidence was developed to show wife had committed
adultery and had sought contact from her husband at the same time she
claimed he was harassing her.
Client Gains Custody of Three Children

into a shelter under claims of domestic violence from her new husband,
and refused to disclose her whereabouts and had denied father's court-ordered
visitation with children for 30 days. After proving to the court that
mother's instability and obstruction were not in children's best
interests, an Order was prepared and then signed which allowed client
to retrieve the children from their new school and take custody without

possession of the residence, and she got an order for the husband not
to contact her.
Father is Prevented From Winning Custody
In a legitamation case filed by a father who Mr. Fox's client believed
did not really care about the child, Mr. Fox was able to achieve his client's
goal to resist the father's efforts to win custody and his client
was allowed to move out of state to be near her parents; Mr. Fox arranged
an interstate visitation schedule and secured adequate support to allow
the mother to start a new life in another state.
Father's Visitation Rights Suspended
Due to client-mother's fears of previous abuse by father on her child,
court suspended all visitation between father and his children after evidentiary
hearing involving testimony from child's counselors and investigating
law enforcement officers. Mother thereafter filed for termination of parental rights.
Client Receives Favorable Parenting Time
Finalized divorce providing father with well-above-average parenting time
and a corresponding child support reduction as a result. This occurred
after wife/mother initially withheld their toddler-daughter from father
for reasons that I demonstrated to the court were insincere and unreasonable.
