Project #4058 - research and writing

 I need help in coming up with 2 court memos using the following infomation. ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONSYour first task is to take the role of a legal researcher for theattorney arguing that the mother should have custody. Thefirst memorandum should be written from this perspective.Your second task is to take the role of a legal researcher forthe attorney arguing that the father should have custody.The second memorandum should be written from this perspective.In your research for each memorandum, youshould check both statutes and cases, keeping in mind thefacts of the case.THE CASEYou should know the following information about the case.The ParticipantsSally Bright asked her husband, John, to move out temporarilydue to marital difficulties. After a brief separation,Sally filed for divorce and received temporary custody oftheir 14-year-old daughter, Chastity. John’s response toSally’s divorce petition requested custody and the courtordered that the child have visitation with John everyweekend.Nine months later, the court conducted a final hearing in thedivorce matter. Both parties still want custody of Chastity.The FactsAmong the facts that came out during the hearing, and areundisputed, are the following:• Sally will be moving to another part of the country soonto take a job.• A psychologist that counseled Chastity about heremotional problems testified that Chastity wouldprefer to stay with her dad so that she doesn’t haveto go to a new school and make new friends.• John has realized that he is gay and has met a malecompanion who doesn’t live with John presently butsomeday might.• Chastity testified that she feels “weird” around John’snew companion.• John makes $125,000.00 per year and Sally’s new job inanother part of the country will pay $35,000.00.• John has, on several occasions, physically abused Sally,but he never did so in front of Chastity and has neverabused Chastity.• Both parents have been actively, and almost equally,involved in the day-to-day care of Chastity throughouther life.The TestimoniesThere have been two separate testimonies given.Testimony of Dr. Samuel Stoller. I counseled Chastity atthe request of her father, John, who said she was havingproblems at school since her mother filed for divorce. Chastityclearly wants to stay in the area so she can be with herfriends as she moves into high school. Given the stress ofthe divorce, I think it’s in Chastity’s best interest that sheremains in the safe, secure environment that she is familiarwith. Since her mother is moving away, Chastity should staywith her father. The fact that John is gay has no bearing,since studies show that a parent’s sexual orientation doesn’tusually affect his or her ability to be a good parent.Testimony of Dr. Frank Edwards. I was appointed by thecourt to interview the parties and the child and make a recommendationregarding custody. I found that both parentswere suitable custodians, but I think the better custodianwould be the mother. Chastity says that she feels uncomfortablearound her father’s new companion. I’m not biasedagainst gays, but I think Chastity could be teased at school.Another factor is John’s drinking. He denied having a drinkingproblem, but Sally says he drinks to excess on occasion.This could be dangerous, especially if he were transportingthe child while intoxicated.include only the first three (3)pages of any case law or other supporting documentationthat you’re submitting with your Memos.I need case laws of North Carolina to support the memos!Will give excellent tip for who ever that can help me. Thanks
