Ok I found out today that she only gets three days to appeal the decision from the judge.  As for the custody, it crack me up how Costa Rica thinks they can dictate how we handle our business by saying I can't have Emily until custody is resolved... well, I have a full custody order in place that gives me full parental rights to Emily and Trina gets none.  She will only get court supervised visits since she would most likely be in prison for a little while.  She needs to remember that the prosecuting attorney here gave her a chance to come back last year and charges would be dropped... well, she didn't even respond to the the prosecuting attorney which sealed the deal on her charges to stick for sure.  I never want my daughter to not have her mother in her life, but It'll be a cold day in Hades if she gets to have her alone for a long time.

I am excited because I know what is happening is God's will and not mine...  I gave this fight to him a long time ago, or I would be crazy right now.

Best wishes to all,

Actually today should be the last day since the judge ruled on Tuesday... but who knows what is really going on??? I will be on the news again tonight as far as I have been told by the anchor man from the local station.

The news piece looked good.  I had forgotten that your daughter's mother, just like in the Tomayko case, is not even a citizen of Costa Rica and took your daughter to a country that is foreign even to herself.  What legal right does she even have to be in that country?  Can't they just yank her visa or deport/extradite her?  Does she even speak Spanish?

Tomakyo got asylum, as I recall. I do know a case where the mother was also not Costa Rican - Mary McBeth, and they did deport her and return her son to his father. Maybe it has to do with the fact he filed the Hague application?

well I just got back from Costa Rica last night,I surprise everybody when I walk in the Judges office, there was a representative from PANY present witch he didn't know that this was a Hague convention hearing for my daughters return until the middle of the hearing :confused:. the way it looks there trying to make this into a Costa Rica custody battle.
Good thing I purchase a book about the Hague convention for my lawyer right outside the court room now she is understanding more about the situation and the steps to take for Wednesday when they issue an order.

I was Able to see my daughter in this little police shack for about 5 minutes with everyone looking ,but I did not pay attention! all I care was about my daughter and to hold her for the first time in Half a year.
Now I just hope I will be able to travel again to see her.

Just so everyone knows, "wearenotmissing" in the comments is a parental kidnapper and buddies with our good friend Emmanuel Lazaridis.

I'm so glad you were able to be see your daughter, even if it was only for a few minutes with everyone watching.  Are they going to issue a decision on Wednesday?
