threat of the brother’s objection to a custody change and the possibility of the child’s father also seeking custody. Kassandra worked diligently to prepare Brooke for her scheduled inquest case. She obtained all the necessary documents and determined there was no legal custody order in place for anyone, including the brother. She also found that due to the father’s abusive history, he should be excluded.
The day of the inquest, Brooke’s brother and her abuser did not attend the proceedings. After the judge reviewed all documents, Brooke was granted full custody of her daughter!
Unfortunately, Brooke’s story is not an anomaly. People face many obstacles like addiction, domestic violence, death, child custody, and more. We want our neighbors in the Hudson Valley to know that if you fall on hard times, we are here to help.
