MLF Team

The Court of Appeals issued a decision on February 18, 2013 enforcing a trial court’s decision to award sole legal and physical custody of the parties’ two year old child to the mother. In this case, the father was an alcoholic, failed to attempt to see his child for several months and lacked judgment to make decisions in the best interest of the child. The father failed to follow any rules in his life, by being arrested several times for DUI and stalking, and lacked stability in his life. In this case, it is appropriate to suspend rights to visitation and custody.
