Father wins interstate custody dispute

After a nine-day hearing, court rules that daughter can stay in Ohio

A child’s father, an Isaac Wiles client, was locked in an interstate custody dispute with the mother, a Colorado resident. The ruling came down in favor of the father.

Over a course of a nine-day hearing, the evidence revealed a pattern and practice of the mother’s attempts to keep their daughter from her father, the daughter not performing well in school while in the mother’s care, and an overall lack of appreciation by the mother for father’s role in his daughter’s life.

After the ruling, the child’s mother chose not to appeal.
