Won affirmance and dismissal of visitation petition for lack of continuing jurisdiction

Matter of Georgianna N. v Carmen V., 185 AD3d 494, 495 [1st Dept 2020])

In this proceeding by the biological grandmother of two children who had been adopted by my clients, the First Department agreed with my argument that this case should have been dismissed for lack of continuing jurisdiction under Domestic Relations Law (DRL) 76-a[1][b] as the parents and children no longer reside in New York, but in Florida.
