Won affirmance of order that completely denied any visitation to the father.

Matter of Harry S. v Olivia S.A., 143 AD3d 531 (1st Dept 2016)

In this visitation proceeding where I represented the mother, the First Department agreed with my arguments that Family Court properly determined that the “drastic remedy” of complete denial of visitation was in the best interests of the children. The Court accepted my argument that such a remedy was appropriate because the father has a history of violence against the mother and there is an extant order of protection in favor of the mother and both children and that the father made no effort to foster and maintain a relationship with the children during the extended period of time (six years for the younger child, five years for the older) the children lived with relatives abroad, an arrangement that the father himself proposed.
