Accorfing to her lawyer, he wants her to stay in Hawaii, there is an appeal to juristrion in VA, however, it has not been heard. She has a court date on Monday the 22nd, she was served last night in Hawaii. The lawyer wants her to stay in Hawaii ignor the order and fight it out. He also thinks he will get a custody order on Monday. We need to know if Hawaii will enforce and let him come and get the child and return to VA. While the appeal is waiting and the custody case in Hawaii that is pending .
VA has awarded juristrtion, we have an appeal in, Monday is the next case where he may get the award.
So we have an appeal pending VA juristricion in VA, and a pending custody case in Hawaii.
