About This Case

This case was unique because HKH was not involved from the beginning. The firm was hired after a Temporary Orders hearing had already taken place wherein the ruling was not favorable to the client. HKH took over the case and hit the ground running to help the client get a favorable ruling at final trial. The goal was to show the Court that the Father deserved to be actively involved in his children’s lives, which meant the parties had to live close to one another.


This case was challenging because when HKH took over, the case was already in a bad spot for the client. They had to figure out how to convince the Court to change its Temporary Orders ruling at final trial.
