FATHER GAINS CUSTODY AFTER FAMILY COURT PETITION DECIDED

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

After a custody trial, Milana Tepermayster Esq. was successful in obtaining physical custody of the minor child to our client, who filed a petition in family court alleging a change of circumstances. Our client, the father, was forced to file a petition seeking custody of the minor child due to mother failing to plan for the child's educational needs. The father testified as to the efforts he made to ensure the child was cared for in his home as well as ensuring the child was enrolled in school and completed educational assignments. After hearing, the family court judge ruled in favor of our client, citing that mother's actions or inactions warranted a physical award of custody to our client, the Father of the minor child.
