Estranged Father Gets Parenting Time From Mother Who Withheld Contact
Father gets parenting time back after mother withheld contact for two years
Our family law lawyers represented father in a paternity case in which mother had withheld contact between father and child for nearly 2 years
We represented father concerning custody of his 5 year old son, whom father had not seen in nearly 2 years because of alleged alienation by mother.
We quickly assessed from communications with mother that client’s allegations of alienation were credible and then subsequently convinced the Court during a contested proceeding that mother had unreasonably withheld contact between father and child, resulting in client receiving overnight visits immediately and two midweek visits with their child every week.
Our family law lawyers also obtained orders for mother to cease making disparaging remarks about father to their child or anyone else from doing so while in her care.
We obtained an order for mother to complete a parenting education course on the importance of both parents in a child’s life.
