Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Chicago, IL - Oct 24, 2017 - An Illinois judge turned over a 1-year-old child to his father, after the child’s mother snatched the infant from his crib and absconded with the infant to Texas. This father was represented by attorney Andrew A. Muchoney of the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving who was victorious and prevailed in court.
This dad, a warm and loving father to his wonderful 1-year-old boy, came home from work one day to find out that the child’s mother had packed her bags, taken his car and fled their Dekalb home with his little boy. The terrified dad had no idea where his son was, and was distressed and frightened. The child’s mother had disappeared with his son. This distraught father became even more concerned as he strongly believed that the mother was with a convicted felon. This dad feared for the safety of his boy.
This father went into court alone and attempted to get a pro se emergency order of protection against the child’s mother to safeguard his little boy but was instantly denied the protection from the court. This dad knew he needed help and time was running out. Terrified that he would never see his son again, this demoralized father called Chicago Fathers’ Rights attorney Jeffery M. Leving for help. Leving wasted no time and quickly assembled his powerful legal team led by powerhouse litigator Andrew Muchoney who immediately took action by getting into court and filing an emergency motion on behalf this father demanding that the mother return the child to his home in Illinois. He won.
After countless hours of working with local law enforcement in Texas, the search for this dad’s infant son was successful. The local Texas court enforced the Leving team’s legal action and ordered the mother to return the child home safely to his loving father in Illinois. The father and the child’s paternal family are now able to provide safety and stability in this little boy’s life.
This court victory is just one of Leving’s many father-child reunifications which is the basis of his mission for social justice and legal reform. Jeffery M. Leving not only safeguards the rights and lives of fathers, but also those of the children for whom they are so dear.
