4-26-13 is when the court ruled. they didn't grant sole custody to the father, they granted split custody, but said it had to be in florida. they've been down their since the next day. it just doesn't make sense to us that the judge would rule that taking him from where he grew up to go somewhere with no job or real plans was the best thing for the child. it seems like the ex husband told some kind of crazy story when he had alone time with the judge, which my friend or her lawyer were not aware was happening.
her lawyer said the judges decision was final and there was nothing she could do. but that didn't sound right. everything happened in a matter of 2 days.
if the florida court wouldn't have jurisdiction over the matter, wouldn't she need to go through the pa courts?
she cant appeal the ruling made by the pa court through the pa court? they've only been there a cpl weeks. and what do you think her chances would be?
