Cheyenne is a single mother of 2 children. She was served with a paternity petition by the father of her older child asking that he have full physical and legal custody, and that she have no visitation.
Worried about losing her child, Cheyenne contacted Legal Aid. Legal Aid filed a declaration explaining her side of the story to the judge, and was prepared to represent Cheyenne in court. Fortunately, Legal Aid was able to negotiate a settlement, which granted Cheyenne full physical and legal custody, and visitation for the father.
Both parents were relieved about avoiding a custody battle, and happy to achieve a mutually agreed upon settlement.
