Won affirmance on behalf of child of order that estopped petitioner from claiming paternity.

Matter of David G. v Maribel G., 93 AD3d 526 (1st Dept 2012)

In a paternity proceeding where I represented the child on appeal, the First Department accepted my argument that Family Court properly found that it was in the child’s best interests to equitably estop petitioner from claiming paternity (Family Court Act § 532 [a]) as the record shows that petitioner had waited eight years before commencing the proceeding, and failed to communicate with the child or provide financial support, while at the same time, another man was listed on the child’s birth certificate and the child believed that the man was her father.
