Bring Sean Home Foundation > Birotte

Justice Nancy Andrighi suspended return order

<< < (2/7) > >>

I wish I could say I was surprised that this decision is not being enforced, but the truth is I would have been surprised if it had been.  What does surprise me is that this is the same judge that screwed up the Goldman case.  This judge has absolutely no excuse for not having educated herself in the intervening years, especially after watching the results of her decision on Sean.  She needs to be disbarred from ever hearing another Hague case.. or any other case for that matter.

The ruling by Judge John Otoni César de Matos, the 19 th Federal de Minas Gerais. In June last year, in a similar case, a federal court ruled that the boy Sean Goldman be returned to the biological father who lives in the United States, David Goldman. Who disputed custody of Sean, however, was his grandmother. Sean's mother died.

The defense of former player filed a writ of mandamus against the decision of the 19th Civil Court of the Judiciary Section Federal de Minas Gerais, arguing that there is less psychosocial impairment were removed from the conviviality of the mother and family in Brazil.

Nancy Andrighi The minister said in his ruling that "the child is inserted in an environment that will ensure, with absolute priority, the realization of full rights to life, health, nutrition, education, sports, leisure, culture, dignity, respect, freedom, and more than the family and community. "

In its decision last June, the judge at any time thought of the child.

When the opposite happens, the father take the child to the U.S. and Brazilian American justice decides that the child should stay in the U.S., we must follow. So Brazilian women who want to get the green card through their children, beware!
