The opposite party failed to put an end to shared custody in the interim
Two common law spouses separated several years ago. Custody of the child born out of this relationship had always been shared equally according to the settlement out of court between the two parents.
Suddenly, the mother refused to give back the child to the father lest he have custody as usual. She applied to the Montreal Superior Court for a decision that would give her exclusive custody of the child. She also requested that the father’s visiting rights be exercised in supervised centers.
The father hired Mrs. Veronica Vallelonga to have shared custody between himself and the mother maintained as previously.
Our family lawyer pleaded before the Court that it was in the best interest of the child that custody remain shared between both parents since this guaranteed the maintenance of stability in the child’s life. The Judge ordered that shared custody be maintained in the interim. The father was able to see his child again after being prevented to do so for several weeks.
Not all Mrs. Vallelonga’s client obtain custody. See notice.
