Won affirmance and denial of motion to set aside final order of custody.
Matter of Shu Jiao Zhao v Wei Rong, 188 A.D.3d 1220 (2nd Dept. 2020)
In a modification of child custody matter where I also represented the petitioner father in Family Court, the mother appealed Family Court’s denial of her motion to set aside the order of custody arguing that Family Court erred in limiting her testimony and failing to consider certain documentary evidence. I successfully argues that “Family Court did not improvidently exercise its discretion in denying those motions. While, the mother’s motion papers contain documents that she contends were relevant and should have been considered by the court in determining the best interests of the child at the hearing, none of these documents would have produced a different result … The mother in her motion papers failed to provide a basis to disturb the court’s determination that her testimony was not credible.”
