The Police Have Come To Take Your Baby
A young mother hears a knock at the door. The police have come at 10 pm to take her infant child under a court order from another county…and deliver the baby to a man who is not the legal father! It sounds like a script from a nightmare movie from Hollywood, but this actually happened to one of our clients. Using remote technology Bruce Pruitt-Hamm, interrupting his vacation in Hawaii, directed the efforts of Ron Collins and staff for days to quash the court order. Over the next several months we prevailed in keeping the baby with his mother, obtaining consent for her to move with the child and clarifying a complicated family arrangement where two men claimed to be the child’s father.
