Três juízes da Corte sugeriram que Silvana e David Goldman, pai de Sean, tentem um acordo que garanta a visitação da avó brasileira.
Caso não consigam, os juízes norte-americanos determinaram que seja realizada uma nova audiência no caso.
Sean é filho de Bruna Bianchi, que morreu no parto do segundo filho, em 2008, quando já não queria voltar aos EUA.
É a primeira vez que Silvana consegue uma decisão favorável da Justiça americana desde que o neto foi levado de volta para os EUA, no Natal de 2009.

Informada pela Folha da decisão da Justiça norte-americana, Silvana Bianchi disse que essa era "a melhor notícia em muitos anos".
A advogada de David Goldman, Patrícia Apy, não respondeu aos pedidos de entrevista feitos pela Folha.
DISPUTA
Nascido nos Estados Unidos, Sean veio ao Brasil em 2004 com a mãe, Bruna Bianch, que morreu em 2008. O menino era criado pelo padrasto e pelos avós maternos.
Desde a morte de Bruna, David Goldman e a família brasileira disputam a guarda do menino. O caso ganhou repercussão internacional e envolveu até a secretária de Estado americana, Hillary Clinton, que cobrou das autoridades brasileiras a devolução do garoto para o país.
Goldman vivia com a brasileira em Nova Jersey desde 1999 --o filho nasceu em 2000. Segundo ele, em 2004, Bruna levou o menino ao Brasil de férias, mas ao chegar ao país avisou que queria o divórcio e que manteria o filho no Rio. Para o pai, o menino foi sequestrado e foi mantido ilegalmente no Rio com os avós.

Depois que ordem de 2004 da Justiça de Nova Jersey para devolução do garoto não foi cumprida, Goldman notificou o Departamento de Estado dos EUA. Ele também entrou com um processo no Brasil.
Entretanto, Bruna --que se casou novamente--, morreu no parto de sua filha com o segundo marido, em 2008. O padrasto, João Paulo Lins e Silva, assumiu a disputa judicial pela criança.
Os advogados de Lins e Silva argumentaram na Justiça que não há, no caso, desrespeito à Convenção de Haia --como alegou Goldman--, acordo internacional relativo à proteção de crianças e à cooperação sobre adoção. Por ter saído dos EUA acompanhado da mãe, e por ser brasileiro, não teria havido sequestro.
Sean voltou aos Estados Unidos graças a uma decisão do então presidente do STF, Gilmar Mendes, que suspendeu uma liminar que garantia a permanência do menino no Brasil. Sean deixou o Brasil na véspera de Natal de 2009.
Em maio deste ano os advogados de Silvana Bianchi, disseram que ela aceitaria encerrar a disputa jurídica com o pai do garoto se fosse retirada da exigência de pagamento para os advogados de David Goldman, pai de Sean.

Three judges of the Court suggested that Silvana and David Goldman, father of Sean, try an agreement ensuring the visitation of the Brazilian grandmother.

Failing this, the judges determined that Americans be held a new hearing in the case.

Sean is the son of Bruna Bianchi, who died in childbirth with her second child in 2008, when he no longer wanted to return to the U.S..

It is the first time that Silvana get a favorable decision by the U.S. court since her grandson was taken back to the U.S. on Christmas Day 2009.

Informed by the decision of the Leaf North American justice, Silvana Bianchi said this was "the best news in years."

David Goldman's attorney, Patricia Apy, did not respond to interview requests made by Leaf.

DISPUTE

Born in the United States, Sean came to Brazil in 2004 with his mother, Bruna Bianch, who died in 2008. The boy was reared by his stepfather and the maternal grandparents.

Since the death of Bruno, David Goldman and Brazilian families vie for custody of the boy. The case gained international attention and involved until the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who charged the Brazilian authorities to return the boy to the country.

Goldman lived with Brazil in New Jersey since 1999 - the son born in 2000. According to him, in 2004, Bruna took the boy to Brazil on vacation, but when you get warned that the country wanted a divorce and keep the child in Rio for the father, the boy was kidnapped and was held illegally in Rio with his grandparents .

After around 2004 Justice from New Jersey to return the boy was not met, Goldman notified the U.S. State Department. He also filed a lawsuit in Brazil.

However, Bruna - who remarried - died in childbirth of her daughter with her second husband in 2008. The stepfather, Joao Paulo Lins e Silva, took the legal battle for the child.

The Lins e Silva's lawyers argued in court that there is, in the case, disregard the Hague Convention - as claimed Goldman - international agreement on protection of children and cooperation on adoption. Having left the U.S. with his mother, and being Brazilian, there would have been kidnapped.

Sean returned to the U.S. thanks to a decision by the then President of the Supreme Court, Gilmar Mendes, who lifted an injunction that guarantee the permanence of the boy in Brazil. Sean left Brazil on Christmas Eve 2009.

In May this year Silvana Bianchi's lawyers, said she would accept to close the legal dispute with the boy's father if he were removed from the requirement to pay for lawyers for David Goldman, father of Sean.

I hope they find a way, even though it's hard to believe in Silvana. Of course Sean must have contact with his Brazilian relatives, they are part of his family and David agrees, but what if they try to bring the boy back to Brazil?

If they are arguing that Sean is connected with his grandmother, David can say the same thing they did -- he's been here for more than a year, he is settled here and doesn't need to see her.


Also, I think David did "try an agreement ensuring the visitation of the Brazilian grandmother."  Did he not offer her visits, and does he not continue to, if she would drop the lawsuits and agree to a therapist being there?  Seems pretty simple to me!  What she wants is to have Sean all to herself so she can try to fill his head about what a bad guy his dad is, and how everyone can't live with him.  What a burden.

I'm sick of criminals being made out to be victims.

This woman abused the Brazilian legal system for half a decade to prevent father and son from having a relationship, but when the father demands that this woman cease and desist using the Brazilian legal system to attack and abuse his son before he allows her anywhere near him the appeals court finds this, eminently reasonable, stipulation to be "onerous"?

The end of the article says:

"In May this year Silvana Bianchi's lawyers, said she would accept to close the legal dispute with the boy's father if he were removed from the requirement to pay for lawyers for David Goldman, father of Sean. "

So apparently even she is willing to drop the never-ending lawsuits in Brazil, which amount to financial, emotional and "legal" abuse (ie "Domestic Violence"), if she can just avoid having to compensate the father for the expenses she forced him to undergo in order to see his son.  I believe there's a name for threatening someone with violence in exchange for money.  Extortion.
