Jacqui

The Situation

Jacqui was stuck in the middle of an intense custody battle. She’d been living with an aunt since she was taken away from her home, when only three-months-old, due to her mother’s drug abuse. But Jacqui’s father had always wanted to be a part of her life. Unfortunately, the aunt and father weren’t on speaking terms and therefore not able to resolve the custody issue on their own.

CASA Steps In

Once she learned of the problem, Jacqui’s Advocate quickly stepped in and set up a meeting between everyone involved. Together, they helped develop a visitation plan that allowed Jacqui to spend time with her father.

The Outcome

Thanks to this plan, the father was able to become Jacqui’s full-time guardian and things are going very well.
