Case Conclusion Date: 10.18.2011
Practice Area: Child custody
Outcome: Custody modified so child moved to New York.
Description: A child had been living primarily with his mother in Tampa for several years after divorce and father moved to New York. The mother sent the child to live with his father several times presumably for good, but then she would always change her mind and make him come back. If the father refused to send the child back, she'd move to hold him in contempt. The mother also moved around from address to address and did not keep a job, whereas the father had a very good job in New York. Finally, the boy, 13 at the time, wanted to move to New York to be with his father.
