Brazilian Family Vows to Continue Custody Fight Over Sean Goldman
9-year-old Sean Goldman was returned to his father in America on Christmas Eve, but his Brazilian relatives aren’t done fighting yet.
It was probably the happiest day of David Goldman’s life. Not only was it Christmas Eve, but after five long years of fighting for custody of his 9-year-old son Sean, David had won.
Sean’s stepfather and maternal grandmother in Brazil had lost the custody battle, but they won’t let it end this way. On Tuesday, the family’s attorney, Sergio Tostes, issued a press release stating that the family would continue to fight for custody. “The early delivery of Sean does not end,” Tostes said, “The court proceedings continue.”
David’s attorney, Patricia Apy, told reporters in New Jersey, “If they are going to persist to take positions that are contrary to Sean’s best interest, we would need to evaluate what impact that would have going forward on Sean.”
For now, Sean is safe and getting accustomed to life in New Jersey with his dad, David. (CNN)
