About a year ago, I posted about a Central Florida Attorney in the Thick of International Child Abduction Case Regarding His Stepson.
And now, a year later, an eleven year old boy who has spent most of his life in the Ocala, Florida area, must return to Costa Rica to live with his biological father.
The “psychological father” who raised him, a Florida attorney, exhausted all available legal options in an effort to allow the boy to remain in his Florida home.
The attorney was married for several years to the boy’s mother, who has a drug problem, but never legally adopted the boy.
During mother and son’s annual visit to Costa Rica, the boy’s biological father sought custody and was able to hold the boy there.
The Florida attorney hired a contractor to recover the boy, but the boy’s biological father pursued the boy’s return in American courts.
