Brazilian Grandparents Thwarted by Troxel

The grandparents of a boy brought from Brazil to his father's New Jersey residence after a five year international custody battle was denied the "right" to visitation with their grandson. Father had been enmeshed in a protracted custody battle with the mother, who had taken the child to her native Brazil in 2004. She divorced the father there and remarried (a lawyer no less).. After the mother died in 208, the abduction case received world-wide attention. Father repeatedly traveled to Brazil to visit his son, but was unable to bring him to the U.S. until after a U.s. Senator began traveling with him. Father denied visitation to the grandparents so he could have time to get to know his son. The boy is reported to be doing well at his new home and in school. The grandparents were miffed about father denying visitation and filed an emergency motion in court. The NJ court rightly found that the situation was not an "emergency," and ruled against them. Apparently counsel for the grandparents has never heard of Troxel. The entire AP story can be found here. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100405/ap_on_re_us/us_us_brazil_custody_battle
