Child Abducted to Italy ? Taken into Child Protective Custody There ? and Withheld from Father in US
By Janet Langjahr
New York Father and Italian immigrant Mother battle for custody of Son.
Mother accuses Father of child abuse.
But police and psychologists see things differently.
Mother is diagnosed with various psychological disorders and is found to have alienated Son from Father.
Father is awarded sole custody of Son and Court prohibits Son’s removal from US.
Nonetheless, Mother gets Son at school and abducts him to her native Italy.
Where she continues to accuse Father of abuse.
In time, child welfare authorities in Italy discredit Mother’s allegations and remove Son from Mother’s custody …
And place Son in an orphanage. Two years ago.
While Father is denied any contact with Son at all.
Father has finally been allowed supervised visitation.
But the Italian courts won’t allow him to take Son home.
And Italy is a party to the
Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
