the wealthy lins silva family have succeeded in getting the ruling in favor of the boy's REAL father tossed out, and now the goldman family must file another appeal...sad...very sad...that the Brazilian goverment is allowing the continued kidnapping of his son..because the kidnappers are rich..very sad...justice in Brazil has a price I guess.
The international law is on the side of Goldman...to refute international law is to participate in the criminal act of kidnapping..and the Brazilian goverment is part of the crime now.

This is absolutely outrageous. Let that child come home to his father. The judge should be horse-whipped along with that idiot "step-father!" Wonder why the child might now have problems? If those morons in Brazil had let the REAL father have custody of HIS son following the death of the mother, the little boy would not be having those problems. It sounds like the fake father has a little pull with the so-called court system in Brazil. Gee, I wonder how much THAT cost him?

When the Mother was not going to return then at that time the laws says the child should have returned back to America as he is a US citizen...So the law was initially broken then and when she died...again the child should have gone back to the US...and now ....what a friggin shame...what a shame Brazil!

it sounds like brazils family-law court is just as corrupt as ours here in the U.S. at this point they can't let the kid come home, they would really look incompetent.

The difference of course is that the USA has complied with hague law that both the USA and Brazil have signed to obey...The USA has returned over 100 children to Brazil that were abducted by one parent or another...Brazil has not returned any, besides Sean Goldman there are over 70 children that are US citizens that were abducted by a parent, that have not been returned to the USA...Brazil knows, that if they released Sean to his father in the USA it will set a precedent for all the other cases to follow...that is why they are being so reluctant to return Sean.

I like to know if there is a correlation between mother abductions and father abductions. Brazil is saying that the reason why they're not returning Sean is because their law says the child goes with his mother.

if the mother was still alive that arguement would hold more water....maybe...but with the mother dead the only other place for the child would be his natural father.
